Regional Transportation District (RTD)

One of the most exciting developments is the train between the airport and  Union Station, located in the middle of Denver. The train runs every 15 minutes and the travel time takes a mere 30-40 minutes. Catching a train is easy compared to the drudgery of an expensive rental car as well as the problem of parking. The train is easy to find in the airport. Follow the RTD signs or just ask any of the numerous friendly airport employees. Purchase your ticket at the kiosk immediately adjacent to the track. We used a credit card but I am certain that a debit card will be accepted. Simply follow the easy directions on the ticket machine. The price is $9 each way. If you are a child, disabled, a senior, or a student the price is $4.50. What a deal!

Transportation from Union Station is easy and available. You can hop on the free mall bus to travel down 16th street. Uber or Lyft is inexpensive, efficient and fast. You no longer need to worry about a rental car. The competition to provide transportation is good news for all consumers! The advanced planning of the city of Denver makes the rapid and massive growth of the city easy to handle.

Where Does The Train Stop?

The train stops regularly along the rail to Union Station. However, considering the speed of the train, they are not burdensome. There are multiple stops along Pena Boulevard and I-70. The stops allow easy commuting for people working in the city. Bicycles are allowed on all of the trains and buses. Bicycling in Denver is accepted and the population is very considerate of all cyclists. Numerous cycling trails and parks are available. From Union Station, the train can be taken to multiple more western locations (RTD schedules). Grab a Bustang from Union Station onward to Frisco, Vail, Aspen and other towns west of Denver. Public transportation into the mountains is well planned. Navigating Denver and the surrounding areas is accessible as well as easy and inexpensive.

How Can You Go Wrong?

You cannot go wrong with public transportation in Denver. The city planners are doing an excellent job for the future. Central Denver remains congested with limited parking. This problem has developed due to rapid growth and is not the fault of city planners. Do yourself a favor and use public transportation. As Denver and the surrounding areas develop, congestion will worsen but is mild compared to LA, Atlanta, or DC. The largest problem is the very rapid influx of new people and the need for increased water supply. As you know, water rights are a huge issue in the Western States. Dever will likely double its size within 30 years or faster. Enjoy the city and surrounding areas now. The city is affluent and safe. A bright future is ahead.
