If you’re heading to Coors Field to catch a Colorado Rockies game, you have lots of options for getting there. By riding transit or walking or biking to the game, you can save stress and money by not having to worry about traffic or parking. Plus, it’s better for our air.

How do I get to the Rockies game using transit?

The Colorado Rockies play at Coors Field in Denver’s lower downtown/Ballpark Neighborhood. Good cross streets to aim for are 20th Street & Blake Street or 22nd & Blake.

The Regional Transportation District (RTD) transit hub, Union Station is conveniently located only 5 blocks from Coors Field – and a pretty cool destination in and of itself, with shops and dining options. Whether you’re catching an RTD train or bus, many lines will take you to Union Station, or get you even closer to Coors Field.

Suggestions for which bus or train to take to the Rockies game

If you’re coming from Thornton, Northglenn, Brighton or other points north of Denver:

Try taking the N line train or the 120X express bus. Both will drop you off at Union Station, just a few blocks from Coors Field.

If you’re coming from Boulder, Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, Broomfield, Westminster or other points northwest of Denver:
  • Hop on the Flatiron Flyer express bus. You can find stations along U.S. 36. You’ll travel in comfort to Union Station, just a few blocks from Coors Field.
  • From Westminster, try the B line train to Union Station. Westminster Station near 71st and Federal is a great place to catch the train.
If you’re coming from Arvada, Wheat Ridge, Golden, Lakewood or other points west of Denver:
  • From Arvada and Wheat Ridge, catch the G line train to Union Station, just blocks from Coors Field. The G line makes stops at Ward Road, Olde Town Arvada, Pecos Junction and other stations along the way. 
  • From Golden or Lakewood, the W line train will take you to Union Station. Major stops include the Jefferson County Government Center in Golden, the Federal Center, Wadsworth, Sheridan and others.
  • If you live on this side of town near Colfax, you can take the 16 bus to Colfax and Broadway; transfer there to the 0 bus or the free MallRide shuttle to get closer to Coors Field. 
If you’re coming from Littleton, Englewood, Sheridan, Highlands Ranch or other points south of Denver:

Ride the D line train to the game. While the D line would normally take you to a different downtown station on 18th Street, during summer 2024 the D line will instead drop you at Union Station, just blocks from Coors Field.

If you’re coming from Centennial, Greenwood Village, Lone Tree, Parker, Glendale or other places southeast of Denver:
  • Hop on the E line or H line train. Both will take you to Union Station, just blocks from Coors Field. Note that the H line’s usual destination is 18th Street downtown but due to summer 2024 construction, it is rerouted to Union Station through Sept. 14, 2024. In addition, there are delays on these routes during summer 2024 due to track repair work. More details here.
  • If you live near Parker Road, you can take the 483 bus up to Nine Mile Station, where you can catch the H line train downtown.

 

If you’re coming from Aurora, Green Valley Ranch, Montbello, Central Park, Northfield or other places east of downtown Denver:

Do like the jazz greats of old and take the “A” train – the RTD A line, that is – which will bring you to Union Station, just blocks from Coors Field. If you’re farther south in Aurora, hop on the R line train northbound to Peoria Station, where you can transfer to the A line to Union Station. Note there are delays on the southernmost part of the R line during summer 2024 due to track repair work. More details here.

Where do I find bike parking at the Rockies game?

Biking to the Rockies game is another great option. You’ll get some exercise and arrive right at the field without having to worry about parking. Bring a good lock and park your bike near Coors Field Gate E, Gate A or across from Gate B at 22nd and Blake Streets.

Other options for getting to the Rockies game

If you live nearby, of course the easiest way to get to the Rockies game may be to use your own two feet. Get some exercise and enjoy the scenery at 3 miles per hour. Or you can always check out renting an electric scooter through local scooter share programs.

Why is it a good idea not to drive to the game?

There are other reasons to leave the car behind when you head to the Rockies game beyond saving money and reducing stress. The more we can all ride a bus, train or bike or get places on foot, the less pollution enters our air. This can make a difference at a time when we need to clean up our air in Colorado. Traveling by public transit is also ten times safer per mile than traveling by car. By giving Coloradans more choices for getting around, we can save money and cut air pollution at the same time.

Go, Rockies!
