Free MetroRide

GDT > RTD Info > Routes > Free MetroRide

The Free MetroRide runs from Union Station on the west end to Civic Center Station on the east end, covering key stops along 18th and 19th streets. Originally introduced as an efficient alternative to relieve congestion on the Free MallRide for those traveling to and from Downtown office buildings, it was suspended at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Map & Schedule

The Free MetroRide has been brought back on a temporary basis to provide riders affected by the Downtown Light Rail Loop Reconstruction project a way to get to and from Union Station where most trains have been detoured to. Unlike it’s earlier incarnation, the buses run every 10 minutes from approx. 6am to 7pm, 7 days a week.

Vehicles Used

The Free MetroRide uses diesel New Flyer XD60 articulated transit buses. Buses are equipped with ramps and designated spaces for wheelchairs.
