From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


The Regional Transportation District operates all fixed route public bus service (except university or mall shuttles) in the Denver, Colorado area. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, RTD paused service on multiple lines as of April 19, 2020,[1] however, only permanent discontinuations will be listed here.

Downtown shuttles[edit]

RTD operates two free shuttles within downtown Denver to facilitate transfers between Union Station, Civic Center Station, and light rail on California and Stout Streets.

  • Free MallRide[2]
  • Free MetroRide[3]

Express Routes[edit]

These routes provide service between major suburban transit centers or park and ride lots and key destinations. Most services are designed for commuters and run only on weekdays. These lines feature limited stops in a manner similar to Ltd routes. RTD's 2016 fare restructuring eliminated the express fare category. Express routes were reclassified as either local or regional, depending on their length.[13] Express routes that were reclassified with local fares were generally converted to limited routes.

Regional Routes[edit]

These routes connect areas that are on opposing sides of the metropolitan area. They generally run as local lines around the two termini, then travel along freeways or major highways with no stops in the middle portions of the route. Express versions of regional routes run as limited lines through the two end portions of the route, then follow the same middle segment. Some routes provide service to rural areas, traveling along multi-lane highways with limited stops.
