RTD Light Rail


Reiskin, et al. v. RTD, 14-cv-03111-REB-KLM


Plaintiffs alleged RTD light rail trains do not provide the required space to allow at least two persons using the wheelchair or other mobility aid to access the train and have sufficient room to get to and sit without interfering with the maneuvering space of others getting on and off the train.


On November 18, 2014, CCDC and four of its members who use wheelchairs filed a class-action complaint, seeking to get the Court to order RTD to provide the required 30" x 48" clear floor space for at least two passengers who use wheelchairs or mobility aids that also allows for maneuvering space for other passengers.

The documents below explain what occurred in the case. On November 14, 2016, the Parties requested the Court to certify the class and approve the settlement agreement. The motion and exhibits are attached below.
