Students now have option of taking RTD’s new Free MetroRide, a speedier and equally reliable alternative to the 16th Street Free MallRide. The MetroRide runs during principal business hours, providing downtown commuters with a frequent service that brings them to direct stops with key connecting routes. This includes Union Station, Denver’s central hub for all incoming and outgoing transportation options. Circulating every 5 to 10 minutes, the Free MetroRide is a great free-of-cost option for students in need of punctual and dependable transportation to wherever they need to go.
