    Ridership on New U.S. 36 BRT Service Exceeds Expectations

    4/30/2016
    Passenger volume on RTD transit service increases 45 percent
     
    The Flatiron Flyer, RTD's new bus rapid transit service, which began Jan. 3, is carrying an average of 14,428 passengers per weekday-that's an increase of 45 percent compared to ridership along the U.S. 36 corridor in August 2015-serving Denver, Westminster, Broomfield, Louisville, Superior and Boulder.

    The Flatiron Flyer service has six all-stop and express routes that replaced the prior bus routes. 

    The BRT service runs every 3-15 minutes, depending on time of day and location. In addition to more frequency, the Flatiron Flyer has increased weekday trips to 92 and increased weekend trips to 42. 

    The Flatiron Flyer provides 18 miles of high-frequency bus service between Boulder and Denver. This bus rapid transit service operates in a combination of the newly constructed express lanes, the general purpose lanes, and starting May 1, on the shoulder of U.S. 36.  

    Also, U.S. 36 now has overhead signage which displays real-time highway conditions, allowing buses and other vehicles to move into alternative lanes to avoid traffic delays.
