Denver Launches New Airport Rail Connection




denver a line

Getting to and from Denver’s airport just got easier. The city just launched the long-awaited A line, which connects Denver International Airport to Denver Union Station, an historic urban transportation hub in downtown Denver. 

Richard Scharf, president and CEO of Visit Denver, said that the new line will boost Denver’s profile as a meeting and convention destination by offering a convenient connection to the city’s walkable downtown area. 

A ride on the electric commuter rail costs $9. From Denver Union Station, travelers will find themselves within walking distance of many of the city’s attractions, including the free MallRide on Denver’s pedestrian 16th St. Mall, the free downtown MetroRide, pedicabs and B-cycle, Denver’s bike share program with 700 bikes at more than 80 stations (and more than 85 miles of urban bike trails on which to ride them), along with a growing network of protected bike lanes. Downtown Denver offers a wide variety of chef-driven dining options, dozens of craft breweries, three sports stadiums, the second largest performing arts complex in the U.S., an assortment of art and history museums, the country’s only downtown theme and water park and a world-class aquarium, all within a very small radius, city officials said. 

Up next: the Colorado Convention Center will soon add a new football field-sized rooftop terrace with meeting and ballroom space overlooking the Rocky Mountains.
