How to get to Coors Field with RTD and RockiesRide

Opening Day at Coors Field is considered by many to be the true first day of spring in Denver. When you’re downtown on game day it’s easy to see why—the streets seem to spontaneously erupt into a jostle of purple joy that continues into the night. Well, joy and traffic.

The streets in LoDo and nearby stretches of highway are notoriously jammed before and after games, and no matter what the score is the $25 parking isn’t good for anyone’s mood. But thanks to several options offered by Denver’s RTD bus system, these game day annoyances can be avoided so Rockies fans can focus on what really matters: baseball.


These bus routes depart from 14 metro area locations (PDF map) and take passengers directly to Coors Field for less than the price of a ballpark hot dog ($3.30-$4.50.) RockiesRide service is available for all weekend home games, as well as several weekday games. In addition to Opening Day Friday, April 9, weekday service is offered for Red Sox games (June 23-24,) Cubs games (July 30) and fireworks games (July 2, September 24.)

Light Rail

For regular light rail fare, passengers can take the C or E lines to Union Station and walk four blocks to Coors Field (map.) While the C line does not normally operate on weekends or holidays, a special C line service will operate during the same hours as RockiesRide buses.

Mall Ride

The 16th Street Mall Ride offers free service from any corner along the Mall direct to Union Station. Many RTD bus lines connect to the Mall Ride from other parts of the metro area, making this an option for both area residents and visitors staying downtown. To find your route, visit RTD’s online trip planner.
