Snowy conditions across the Denver metro region are affecting the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) services.

RTD encourages riders to plan ahead and expect delays during Tuesday morning’s commute. RTD service will continue to be affected as the storm progresses.

Bus schedules can be impacted by wet and icy roads as well as traffic delays. Trains are often delayed due to low visibility and slower speeds around stations and through crossings.

Rider information:

  • Cancellations of train trips will be posted to the Rider Alert page.
  • Riders can obtain the latest service updates via Twitter @RideRTD.
  • Real-time locations for light rail and buses are available on Next Ride.

Shovel that snow

Denver residents have 24 hours to clear snow off their sidewalks after it stops falling, and businesses need to clear it right away. Other cities have similar laws.

Denver has the following tips for snow shoveling: 

  • Push (do not lift) the snow with a snow shovel.
  • Shovel snow into your yard to avoid blocking a bike or travel lane. This will also avoid the snowplow from pushing snow back on your sidewalk.
  • Be mindful of neighbors and those you could help if they are unable to shovel or snow-blow, etc.
