Not again! Time to look VERY CLOSELY at the companies and people that RTD hires.

Buses CANNOT " beat " a yellow light by stepping on the gas; furthermore the acceleration will toss the passenger around unless the driver hollers " hang on ".

The driver making the turn has to yield to oncoming traffic; that means you will have to smoke the tires and still yell " hang on " if you are carrying a passenger.

RTD is in for another lawsuit/settlement; we don't pay taxes for this, we pay them for Light Rail. It has been past time for RTD to under stand this; maybe the public should pull their support until RTD cleans up their act.

I think the driver was my best friend, the sole passenger was immediate family and the car looks like my next door neighbor's car or something like that.

The system which allows a cartel to prey upon public transit in Denver must be ended. The private corporations to which public transit must be subcontracted in Denver are just sucking money out of the system -- they do not maintain the buses, sticking RTD with the tab, and they are diverting the monies which should be going to properly train their drivers into the pockets of owners instead. Stop subcontracting any business to these criminal entities and build a real public transportation system!

All the nitwits who still think that Denver's future is so bright they need to wear sunglasses better wake up to the collapse of public transit underway now -- great cities do not make such incompetent arrangements for people to get around.
