When the west light rail line opened the weekend of April 26, RTD moved the bus stop on 8th Avenue in front of 11177 W Eighth Avenue around the corner to Quail Street. This has a very negative impact since it went from the south side of the Developmental Disabilities Resource Center (DDRC)—where there is a cement pad with a bench and shelter as well as a walkway down a slight incline with a hand rail—to the west side of DDRC where the bus stop is a grassy area with NO cement pad, NO sidewalk, NO bench, NO shelter, and NO access down a more significant hill. The new location RTD selected for the bus stop is a serious health and safety concern and does not meet federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. DDRC serves people with developmental disabilities who regularly use the bus to get to our facility. People who use wheelchairs and crutches are being dropped off either on the grass, in the middle of a busy street, or they walk several extra blocks and have to cross the railroad tracks. This is an accident waiting to happen. This move was made without input from DDRC and the people who use this bus route and we learned of this change on April 4 after the change was in place. We need this stop moved back to its previous location on 8th Avenue where there is a bench, paved slab, a sidewalk and a paved walkway with hand rail. We also need the shelter returned so the area is protected from the elements. These changes are necessary for the health and safety of the people who use this bus route.

We believe that the bus stop should be moved back to its original location on 8th Ave. Sign our petition below if you agree.

Thank you for your consideration of this serious concern.
