There really was no "typical" day at RTD, each day was different. It was the Denver area's transit system and the process of creating and adjusting the bus schedules took several months to perform. We had three service changes a year. For each change we were constantly monitoring the running times and passenger levels for each route and when changes were warranted (and resources were available for a change), we would estimate the service levels and new schedules based on these levels, then implement them in on-the-street service.
From 2004-2016; the Denver area RTD was involved in a major transit expansion project in which over 100 miles of heavy ridership rail service was introduced in intervals over this twelve year period. Every time a new segment was open, major bus route adjustments needed to be made.
It was a very friendly, mutual co-operative environment, every one felt as if we were all on the same team and were there to help 400-thousand people a day get to where they needed to go. It was a real team, some of the team members were better at some aspects of the function than others who were better at other aspects, but every one was "there for each other"
The hardest part was due to the cyclical nature of the process, there were often "down times" where activity was at a lull, and I found those to be difficult.
Interesting work, made a major contribution to the growth of a city, working everyday with and for friends
Periodic times of very little work activity
