2020 was a year like no other, but RTD employees suited up and showed up every day,  exhibiting  how important RTD is to the community. This video celebrates the tremendous job RTD employees did during a challenging time. As RTD reached several milestones last year, each one reminded us that a vision can still become a reality.
