The Regional Transportation District (RTD) will begin making riders board buses using the rear doors to limit contact with RTD bus operators, RTD officials said in a news release. Passengers with disabilities are exempt from this new mandate and are asked to continue boarding buses at the front.

Fare collection will also be suspended on all buses and trains across the RTD system. Officials said the agency is working "through processes for refunds and exchanges on applicable fare products."
