Shuttles replacing RTD R-Line in Aurora between 13th Avenue and Florida stations

Shuttle buses are replacing the RTD R-Line in Aurora between 13th Avenue Station and Florida Station Thursday morning due to Wednesday’s train derailment.

RTD is still working to remove the derailed train and assess equipment to make sure it is functional, RTD spokesperson Christina Zazueta said, so there is no time frame on the line’s restoration yet.

“I would just recommend … for anybody looking to use the R-Line or use those services to consider either an alternative bus route or to make more time for the shuttle service,” Zazueta said.
