Due to the pandemic, RTD said that ridership is at about 40% of pre-COVID-19 levels. Given this, RTD said they would reallocate their lines to meet the needs of their busiest routes.

They said underperforming routes would be cut to allow more service for routes with higher ridership.

Among the changes was a suspension of the light rail C Line, which ran from Union Station to Highlands Ranch. The D Line, which loops through downtown before going south to Highlands Ranch, was reinstated.

Routes affected are listed below.
