About 20,000 people ride a bus on Colfax between Denver and Aurora daily. That demand is expected to increase as population grows. So Denver transportation planners propose creating bus-only lanes for morning and afternoon drive times.
The system would run similar to one already in use in the Broadway-Lincoln Corridor.
Planners acknowledge the restricted lanes could increase travel time for drivers but say they can take 13th and 14th avenues instead of Colfax.
