Route 8 Extension

A few years ago, there was no public transit service north of 124th. Smart Commute work with the local municipalities and key business to push RTD to expand its services northward. With persistence and collaboration with RTD staff and Board members, Smart Commute was successful in bringing the local RTD Route 8 all the way to the growing commercial district at 144th Avenue, west of I-25 to Huron. The area is home to high-profile organizations including Amazon DEN3 Fulfillment Center, St. Anthony North Health Campus, The Orchard Town Center, Cabela’s, the Denver Premium Outlets and many other businesses.  We continue to work with the local businesses and municipalities to get service expanded to the west side of I-25 as well.
