Denver frequent transit map

Denver is in the midst of a huge regional rail expansion. That’s great, but like in many cities (including DC, historically), the urban bus system has been largely ignored amidst all the hubbub over rail.

I got my planning degree at the University of Colorado, and after discussing Denver’s bus system with some friends recently, decided to produce this map. It shows the city’s high-frequency bus routes along with its existing and future rail lines.

Although the geography is obviously different, in many ways this map is a sequel to my DC 15-minute bus map from last August. I applied a lot of the lessons learned during that exercise to this Denver map. Compared to the DC version this map shows more information, presented more cleanly.

    Are the heavy commuter rail lines really going to be offering high frequency service?

    They should have 15 minute headways most of the time. It will be hard to do much better than that, but the idea is to use them more like light rail than commuter rail. They just picked heavy rail because it was easier to build.
