Now easier than ever to get from Denver International Airport (DEN) to downtown Denver with the opening of the new Denver airport train line.
$10.50 will provide travelers access to the A Line, to get from the airport to Denver Union Station.
The A Line opened in April 2016 and is the heart of downtown, which is the city’s new transportation hub and “living room,” thanks to its plush surroundings. From Union Station, travelers can access additional local and regional transportation service, such as a light rail, regional and local buses, Amtrak rail service, taxis and the free 16th Street Mall shuttle (MallRide) and free downtown MetroRide buses that provides access to most downtown hotels. The new Denver airport rail has six (6) stops between the airport and Denver Union Station. The ride takes approximately 37 minutes.
Regional Transportation District (RTD)
