Union Station Bus Concourse

Come experience a new kind of transit hub. As a part of the world-class Union Station Transit Center, we opened a sleek, stylish 22-gate underground bus facility to provide convenient connections across our system. With 16 routes (including the Free MetroRide), and several commercial carriers running through the bus concourse, you'll get where you want to go, and fast.

1,000 feet long

Measuring in at 1,000 feet in length, the Union Station Bus Concourse is the size of 3 football fields. It's the ultimate in comfort and convenience, and it's all yours. See all gates at the Union Station Bus Concourse.

A bus every 48 seconds

Union Station bus concourse escalators

That's right. A bus departs from Union Station Bus Concourse every 48 seconds during rush hours, and the bus concourse is large enough to handle all of that volume without creating a traffic jam. With service reaching all over the metro area, RTD can get you anywhere you need to go.

Location, location, location

This new epicenter of RTD transportation is located in the heart of LoDo at 1700 Wewatta Street. The concourse is just a few short steps from light rail, free downtown buses, Amtrak, and commuter rail lines. And it's all under one roof.

Safety first

Your safety is our number one priority. We have security guards patrolling Union Station above ground and below ground 24/7. Security guards are also stationed in the concourse and patrolling on bikes.

Bright and beautiful

The Union Station Bus Concourse has 7 skylights to provide natural light in addition to traditional lighting. This means your new bus concourse is bright and cheery, a big improvement over Market Street Station.

Heated ramps

The bus ramps in and out of the bus concourse are heated, which will keep the buses moving safely in and out of the concourse during even the worst snow storms. The stairs at the Union Station Pavilion are also equipped with snow melt technology.

Amenities

There are public restrooms located on one side of the bus concourse, nearest to Chestnut Pavilion. While there are no snack machines in the concourse, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the proximity of some truly amazing restaurant and retail options just above the bus concourse in the historic building and beyond.
