Rocky Mountain Arsenal, Commerce City, and Stapleton Area

Shuttle Feasibility Study


The City of Commerce City, Colorado contracted with LSC Transportation Consultants, Inc. to complete a Shuttle Feasibility Study with a focus on determining the needs for services and to determine the feasibility of providing those services in the Commerce City, Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge (RMANWR), and Stapleton area. There is a desire to provide access to the Refuge for those from the inner city. Access by transit has the potential to provide a viable mode of access for inner city residents as well as those living in adjacent communities. A well-planned shuttle service has the potential to connect RTD transit routes with the Refuge. The service could also provide access for residents of Commerce City and the Stapleton area. The focus of this project will be to determine the potential demand for a shuttle service and the feasibility of operating the shuttle.


Components of the analysis will include a detailed assessment of transit demand, shuttle system design, analysis of the costs, and identification of potential funding sources. All of the planning must be completed within the context of the adjacent communities, the RMANWR plans, and existing transit services.


The Final Report is available for review.
