RTD continues to suspend all bus, rail service in and out of downtown Denver because of planned protest
The Regional Transportation District (RTD) continues to suspend all bus and rail service into and out of downtown Denver through the end of the service day today in light of a planned protest over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis earlier this week.
RTD is making this decision to ensure the safety of its employees and riders. Protests on Thursday and Friday turned violent. Today’s protest is expected to draw at least 10,000 people to the State Capitol.
Through early Sunday morning, the following service changes remain in effect:
- No bus or rail service will be provided to/from downtown Denver. Union Station and Civic Center Station remain closed.
- Two dozen bus routes will be detoured around downtown.
- On light rail:
- The L line is not running
- The H line is running to 10th/Osage Station
- The C, E and W Lines are running to Empower Field at Mile High Station
- Commuter rail lines will travel between the following stations:
- University of Colorado A Line: Central Park and Denver International Airport
- B Line: Westminster and 41st/Fox
- G Line: Ward and 41st/Fox
RTD will monitor the situation and determine later today when service can resume. That decision will be communicated using RTD’s rider alerts. RTD Transit Police will continue to work closely with the Denver Police Department and local authorities throughout the weekend.
