These routes are effective 6.9.14. Click on the route link to see a detailed map and timetable. Below are some of the highlights of each route.
City Loop North and South: The City Loop route is a bi-directional route which sweeps the RMTD service area. As one bus leaves the downtown Transfer Center to head North (City Loop North), another bus heads out South to travel the same route, only in the opposite direction. The City Loop routes provide the backbone to our system. All other routes connect at some point along the way to the City Loops, making transferring to a connecting route easier and more efficient.
