DENVER -- The Regional Transportation District (RTD) started a new way of reaching out to the public Monday, Nov. 28 through telephone town hall meetings. RTD Directors Bill McMullen and Tom Tobiassen each called residents of their districts to talk about RTD’s programs, services and projects.
The first two telephone town halls of a 15-meeting series occurred Monday evening, with residents of the two districts participating to learn about local bus and rail service, RTD’s FasTracks transit expansion program and other projects underway. Through the town hall series RTD will randomly call more than 400,000 people through innovative telephone technology and invite them to participate in the telephone forum. This allows board members to reach out and speak directly with members of the community.
