RTD will resume limited bus, rail service in and out of downtown Denver today through Thursday

The Regional Transportation District (RTD) will resume bus and rail service into downtown Denver starting early this morning. Today, Wednesday and Thursday, the last bus and train out of downtown will leave by 6:30 p.m., with Union Station and Civic Center Station closing at that time. Passengers should plan their trips accordingly.

This limited schedule change is being made to ensure that RTD’s vehicles and riders are out of the area by the city and county of Denver’s 9 p.m. nightly curfew, which remains in effect until Thursday evening.

With fewer protests downtown, RTD considers it safe to operate its trains and buses in the downtown area.

RTD staff, however, will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day to determine if it is necessary to revise service due to any additional activities downtown. RTD Transit Police is working closely with the Denver Police Department.

Service into and out of downtown Denver had been suspended since Thursday evening out of safety concerns for RTD employees and riders. Safety is a core value at RTD.

Please check RTD’s website and rider alerts and follow RTD on Twitter for specific route detour information and updates as they develop.
