RTD to support Taylor Swift concerts, Rockies vs. Yankees games this weekend with service and connections into downtown

RTD is expecting a surge in ridership on buses and trains this weekend as thousands of people take advantage of Zero Fare transit to attend Taylor Swift concerts and Rockies vs. Yankees baseball games in downtown Denver. The close proximity of both venues to a number of bus stops and rail stations makes public transit a safe and ideal way to attend the concerts and games. Rail operations will also accommodate additional customers by adding capacity to boost service before and after the weekend events.


All RTD services will operate on regular schedules, and customers are encouraged to stay informed by checking the agency’s website and transit apps to quickly find options for best routes to reach Empower Field at Mile High or Coors Field. The RTD website provides details on bus and rail service and where to park.  

“Swifties” are encouraged to download RTD’s Next Ride smartphone application or use the trip planning tool and simply type “Taylor Swift” in the destination field. RTD’s Trip Planner shows transit options in real time to The Eras Tour at Empower Field. The navigation feature will list all available train and bus routes from the user’s current location to the concert venue.
