After 5 years of work, Smart Commute helped to bring new transit service to the 144th and I-25 quadrant, where currently 5,500 employees travel to daily jobs. This work consisted of assembling stakeholders, identifying grant funding streams, and entering into complex agreements with local governments and RTD.
As usual, we provided more than 400 paid trips on RTD, including for the Water World employee FlexRide program and for the City of Thornton's "Explore City Careers" program. We also provided six internships to Northglenn High School students, helping them to learn more about transportation education and advocacy within their community.
The first riders of the 144th & I-25/Wagon Road FlexRide on Monday, November 11.
