2040 Regional Transit Element

2040 RTE Cover

The NFRMPO staff has updated the 2040 Regional Transit Element (RTE) ahead of the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).  The 2040 RTE was adopted by the Planning Council on August 6, 2015.

Although originally anticipated to be an update, there have been too many significant changes in transit services. The 2040 RTE evaluates nine corridors for transit service in the North Front Range region. Transit corridors were evaluated in the transportation model to determine potential demand for transit service in key regional corridors.

The 2040 RTE evaluated nine corridors for potential future transit services within the region:

  • Evans-to-Milliken-to-Berthoud along SH 60 and SH 56
  • Greeley-to-Denver along US 85
  • Greeley-to-Windsor-to-Fort Collins along SH 34, SH 257, and Harmony Road
  • Greeley-to-Longmont along US 85, SH 66, and SH 119
  • Greeley-to-Loveland along US 34
  • Fort Collins-to-Bustang (Express Route)
  • Greeley-to-Bustang (Express Route)
  • Loveland-to-Bustang (Express Route)
  • The proposed North I-25 Commuter Rail line from Fort Collins-to-Longmont, while not being evaluated in this 2040 RTE, is discussed as an important future corridor.     

The 2040 RTE recommendation includes:
  • Further analysis of the transit connections between:
    • Fort Collins and Greeley/Evans area;
    • Greeley/Evans area and Loveland; and
    • Greeley/Evans area and Denver
  • Additional service and investment along the US 287 corridor
