RTD Sets One-Day Ridership Record for Broncos Parade

Denver’s Regional Transportation District announced the highest single-day ridership in its history on Feb. 9, when more than one million fans of the Super Bowl 50 champion Denver Broncos attended a downtown victory parade. RTD worked closely with Denver police and the city and county of Denver to coordinate service detours and interruptions to maintain pedestrian and vehicle safety. To accommodate the crowds, RTD stretched its capacity by deploying every available bus and operator and increasing the number of light rail trips. Despite being shut down for several hours because of the crowds, RTD’s 16th Street Free MallRide experienced an increase of about 20,000 passengers above its normal weekday loads.
