Transcript

  • 1. The Denver Metropolitan area has a population of over 2 million, 10 percent of which are between the ages of 18 and 24. For many students, access to public transportation, specifically the light rail, is a key way to get around the city.
  • 2. A roundtrip light rail ticket downtown from the University of Denver costs $4.50. With an RTD Pass, however, most students at DU and other schools in the Denver area can ride for free during the school year.
  • 3. Approximately 12% of public transit users are en route to school. Many people also use public and alternative means of transit for getting to work and going downtown. This is a picture of art on the wall of the Louisiana and Pearl light rail station.
  • 4. For many students, the convenience of DU’s RTD Passes means they don’t have to purchase tickets every time they want to go somewhere.
  • 5. There are five lines on Denver’s light rail system with thirty-six different stops, going as far north as downtown Denver and as far south as Littleton and the Park Meadows Mall area.
  • 6. FFrom 1995-2005, there was a 25 percent increase in public transportation ridership. In 2005, Americans took 9.7 billion trips using public transportation.
  • 7. The benefits of public transit are not just for those who use it—even those who don’t take buses or use other mass transit systems benefit from the decreased road congestion.
  • 8. A 2005 American Community Survey found that only half of one percent of Americans bike to work. A survey in 2003 found that only 22% of people polled were “very satisfied” with how their local community was designed for bike safety. Shown here is a sign saying where bicyclists can alight on the light rail.
  • 9. Only 4.7% of Americans take public transportation to work everyday.
  • 10. The light rail takes commuters to the heart of downtown Denver’s 16th Street Mall , a popular attraction for many students and visitors.
  • 11. Almost six thousand out of close to ten thousand eligible DU students have taken advantage of the RTD Passes so far this school year.
