RTD - Denver, Co

The Denver area light rail transit system or actually known as RTD was a bit unique and a slight eye opening ride into downtown Denver.  It was unique because there was no turn styles, no ticket taker, no conductor to monitor who's getting on and off the train.  It was eye opening because it was based almost completely on the honor system.  It was explained that from time to time a uniformed officer will board and check to see who has paid and check their stubs.  Also, the trains are monitored more closely during certain professional sporting events and other similar big festivals.  It would be my opinion that this speaks a lot for Denver and their way of thinking and really fits the atmosphere of Denver that I love so much.  This was a short ride to downtown with a new brother and a tasty beer with a good Texan.
