Board vote 10-2 action to approve expansion of non-profit reduced fare program.
I probably surprised some people by voting FOR this because it was giving up potential full-price ticket revenue but I thought it out as they may not have purchased tickets otherwise and frankly our system rarely is at capacity thereby taking a full-price seat.
The other parts of the plan streamline the process for staff at RTD and at the non-profits.
The program is capped as before but it's higher now. Since non-profits do not have unlimited income we have not reached the cap as of yet and I'm updating this description in Sept. 2016.
