Pedaling, Parks, and Public Transit: RTD hosts Bike to Work event at Village Greens

RTD Special Event

RTD’s Bike to Work events engage with community members on how to combine biking with transit options in their everyday lives. On July 15, Community Engagement team members, accompanied by representatives from the Denver South Economic Development Partnership, ventured to Greenwood Village’s mountain bike park to speak with park visitors. 

Imagine the sheer joy of riding a bike or playing a round of disc golf on a picture-perfect summer’s day. Nestled within a sprawling 25.1-acre site, Village Greens Park offers an array of amenities, including softball fields, a mountain bike skills course and a disc golf course, among others.

Community Engagement team

During their visit, the RTD engagement team connected with park visitors to share the convenient options provided by RTD to access Village Greens. Located just a short walk or bike ride away, Dayton Station, along the H and R light rail lines, is less than a quarter-mile from the park. Since the parking lot at the park fills up quickly on the weekends, transit is an easy and worry-free option that visitors and local residents can incorporate into their routines.

People of all ages stopped by to enjoy refreshing lemonade and grab a snack before continuing their journey. RTD team members engaged in informative conversations about Dayton Station, transit safety and the Zero Fare for Better Air program, among other pertinent topics.
