RTD continues to suspend all bus, rail service in and out of downtown Denver Sunday due to protests

The Regional Transportation District (RTD) will continue to suspend all bus and rail service into and out of downtown Denver through the end of the service day Sunday in light of the protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis earlier this week.

RTD made this decision to ensure the safety of its employees and riders. The protests have turned violent and destructive and the city and county of Denver has now imposed a curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting tonight through Monday.

For now, 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 continue to monitor and assess the situation tonight and tomorrow and determine when service in the downtown area will 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.
