Power outage forces RTD to divert R Line train to shuttle buses

RTD officials reported the diversions at 6:11 a.m. in a Twitter post.

“RTD does not know the cause of the outage,” agency spokesman Austin Nettleton said.

“As far as buses go, there aren’t any delays associated with the flooding,” Nettleton added, advising commuters nevertheless to check for “service alerts” at the agency’s online site (www.rtd-denver.com)
