Downtown Denver shuttle service to get more funds
July 9, 2010
DENVER (AP) – Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette and a U.S. Department of Transportation official will announce a multimillion-dollar grant for shuttle-bus service on Denver’s 16th Street pedestrian mall.
The Denver Democrat and transportation Assistant Secretary Polly Trottenberg will announce the grant Friday at a news conference at a bus station on the mall.
The funding will be used to improve the fleet of buses and enhance shuttle service along the 16th Street mall in downtown Denver. The buses serve an estimated 50,000 passengers daily.
The grant is part of the Obama administration’s Livability Initiative.
