RTD Schedule Changes Begin Sunday
There will be changes to four RTD routes in Longmont beginning Sunday, January 22. Route 323, a “local” route that runs from Twin Peaks Mall via Ken Pratt Blvd. to downtown and 8th & Coffman, the OUR Center, Salud Clinic, Skyline High School and 17th & Pace will change from service every 30 minutes to service every 60 minutes. Additionally, the “regional” bus routes serving Boulder, CU and Denver (the BOLT, J and L routes respectively) will no longer pick up passengers on Hover Street or 21st Avenue. These routes all will start passenger service at 23rd Avenue west of Main Street, with the regular bus stop pick-ups/drop-offs south of 23rd Avenue. RTD also will add a trial bus run from Lyons to Longmont in the morning and back to Lyons from Longmont in the evening. This new express bus route will be called the YL.
