I live in colorado springs and I have heard that Denver has pretty good 
public transportation. Here we have limited bus service during the week and 
I have heard it is going to get worse as time goes on. the paratransit 
system only works within the bus line. I happen to live in the part of town 
where there  is no bus service so therefore no paratransit service. I am 
from Texas, Dallas to be exact and when i left there 22 years ago we had 
pretty good service and now there is light rail as well as paratransit as 
well as bus service. Jeanette
