Introducing the Free MetroRide Opening in downtown Denver in spring 2014 RTD’s Free MetroRide is a new bus service that will travel on 18th Street and 19th Street, connecting Union Station and Civic Center Station with fast, frequent, and reliable service during peak morning and evening rush hours. The Free MetroRide will travel through the downtown metro area and will be a great option for connecting to the multiple light rail stations in downtown and the future commuter rail station at Union Station. It will also be a convenient alternative to the Free MallRide with less frequent stops resulting in faster travel times. Free MetroRide facts Route 1.5 miles one way, 3 miles round trip Vehicle 60' articulated, low-floor bus Service times Every 5 minutes during peak rush hours (6–9 a.m. and 3–6 p.m.) Stops Union Station to Civic Center Station Union Station Bus Concourse 19th St & Blake St 19th St & Lawrence St 19th St & Curtis St 19th St & Stout St Broadway & 18th St 16th Ave & Broadway Civic Center Station to Union Station Lincoln St & 17th Ave 18th St & Glenarm Pl 18th St & California St 18th St & Curtis St 18th St & Lawrence St 18th St & Market St 18th St & Wazee St Free MetroRide project overview • It is the latest project from FasTracks, RTD’s voter-approved plan to expand transit service across the region. • The Free MetroRide fleet will be comprised of branded buses, all with the distinguishing teal, silver and gold color scheme. • It will provide additional downtown transportation options, relieving congestion on the 16th Street Mall. • Bus stops will have a new, highly visible canopy with the distinctive color scheme to make the stops distinguishable from other RTD stops in downtown. • The Free MetroRide will accommodate the increased ridership demands projected when the East Rail Line, Gold Line and Northwest Rail Line begin operating out of Union Station in 2016. 1600 Blake Street, Denver, Colorado 80202 • 303.628.9000 • rtd-denver.com Regional Transportation District
