Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

A recent Comment of the Day found one reader maintaining that riding the bus in Denver is a great way to be asked on dates.

This anecdote spurred more. For instance, a former bus driver shared the story of a couple that met on his bus and are planning to get married.

Also weighing in was the following reader, who senses a certain superiority among Denverites when it comes to using RTD.

Here's her take.

It's funny how people think Denver RTD is for people who are less than themselves. My sister in law is a dean at UCDenver and she rides the bus everyday. Hmmmm, she saves a lot of money this way. Americans, we are far to attached to our cars, which are a big waste of money.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
