On November 2, the Government Affairs, Education, and Energy committee hosted Chuck Culig, R-Line project manager for RTD (Regional Transportation District), to give an update on R Line changes. This timely presentation addressed concerns and questions regarding the ride cuts and time changes that will begin January 2018.
Culig explained that weekday service will remain the same (15-minute frequency during peak hours; 30-minute frequency during off-peak hours), but service on the weekends will go from a 15-minute frequency to a 30-minute frequency.
Culig also shared history of the project, including some of the challenges. He talked about each individual station, sharing before and after pictures, as well as distinctive Public Art selected for each station.
In place of a December committee meeting, attendees were invited to attend the Dec. 4 Reception for newly elected Aurora City Council members.
On January 8, 2018, the first of the bi-annual Legislative Breakfasts will be at the Community College of Aurora. All Chamber member representatives are welcome to attend.
