RTD’s Aug. 25 service change includes adjustments that could affect day-to-day commuting for Arvada bus riders. The changes will better compliment service provided by the G Line, RTD’s senior service planner, David Menter said.
To avoid duplicating services provided by the G Line, Routes 31L and 51L will be discontinued, he said.
RTD said several routes have been newly established or altered “to increase speed and efficiency” for Arvada users.
Arvada has worked closely with RTD to create these opportunities, including new Route 55, said City Communications Manager Ben Irwin.
“The city supports service changes that better align bus and rail services,” a statement from the city said. “Staff is hopeful that frequency of bus service on major roadways will increase and that Route 55 will prove to be a successful circulator service to connect residents to the G Line.”
Route 125 established
For those traveling south from Arvada, the new Route 125, will start at Quaker and W. 64th Avenue on the north and extend to Federal Center Station.
The bus will make several stops in Arvada, Wheat Ridge and Lakewood, including at Wheat Ridge’s Ward Station and the Red Rocks Community College campus in Lakewood.
A shortened route will run regularly between Red Rocks Community College and Federal Center Station, operating every 30 minutes on weekdays.
The full route will operate every 60 minutes on weekdays and every 30 minutes during rush hours.
The new route will replace Route 17, which will be discontinued
Route 55 established
A second new route will run between Olde Town Arvada Station on the east and Arvada Ridge Station on the west.
The route will cover portions of Allison Street, W. 52nd Avenue and Garrison Street, in addition to other stops.
Service will run every 30 minutes on weekdays and will not run on weekends.
Route 72 rerouted
Route 72 will now run out of Olde Town Arvada Station.
After heading west from Marshall Street, the route will no longer travel along Ralston Road between Wadsworth Boulevard and Independence Street. Instead, it will serve portions of W. 55th Avenue, Allison Street, W. 52nd Avenue, Carr Street and W. 57th Avenue.
Route 100 rerouted
Route 100 has now been split into two routes, with Route 100 running from US 36 & Sheridan Station to Federal Center Station. The remainder of the old route, which continued south of Federal Center Station, will be covered by a new route, Route 99.
Route 100 has also been slightly rerouted to include Arvada Ridge Station and exclude Ridge Road, Independence Street and Miller Street, instead staying on Kipling Street.
The route will also add Sunday service,.
