RTD welcomes customers for MLB All-Star events
Rail lines provide connections to activities; customers should plan ahead
The Regional Transportation District (RTD) is ramping up to welcome local and national spectators to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game activities. Rail lines are an easily accessible option for reaching the downtown area and the Coors Field ballpark. As with any major event where RTD is moving large amounts of people at one time, there will be a certain amount of waiting, so patience and planning will be essential.
Activities are planned every day from July 9-13. RTD will add light rail and commuter rail cars to regularly scheduled trips on event days to increase capacity, and will back-up scheduled bus service as necessary and as resources allow. RTD ambassadors will be available at the Convention Center Station and Denver Union Station commuter rail and light rail platforms to assist customers.
Due to the ongoing pandemic service schedule, customers should note that some bus and rail services remain suspended. Customers must wear a mask as face coverings are still required when riding public transit, per federal mandate.
Below are some of the specific service changes to be aware of:
July 10 All-Star 5K Run/Walk service impacts
