RTD route timetables are currently a primary source of transit information. The District offers a fare reduction program to its customers in the form of passes or tokens. Substantial quantities of timetables, tokens, and passes are distributed to a wide range of outlets on a regular basis. At present, RTD has 82 regular outlets for timetables, 66 for passes, and 17 for tokens. Bus tokens and passes are also distributed at 35 King Soopers and 54 Safeway stores. An additional 50 timetable outlets are serviced on a request basis. Two primary reasons for this study are the concern over the rising cost of distributing timetables, passes, and tokens, and a recognized need to explore policy options relevant to the distribution system. The purpose of this memorandum is to analyze the existing distribution system and to suggest system changes that could maximize the availability of timetables, passes, and tokens while minimizing the costs.
