DALLAS — Colorado’s Regional Transportation District will not seek voter approval of a sales tax increase in November that would allow completion of the FasTracks rail and bus system on its current schedule.

“The RTD board realizes that while economic conditions are slowly but steadily improving in the Denver metro area, the timing is not right for a 2012 ballot initiative,” said RTD board chair Lee Kemp. “We remain committed to continuing to work with our regional partners to complete FasTracks sooner rather than later.”
