Broncos encourage fans to make alternative transportation plans on gameday with RTD's continued suspension of BroncosRide

Aug 16, 2021

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos are encouraging fans to make alternative transportation plans on gamedays this season with the continued suspension of BroncosRide operated by Regional Transportation District (RTD).
Suspended by RTD in March 2020, BroncosRide provided bus services directly to Empower Field at Mile High (and formerly Mile High Stadium) for Broncos games. Over the last 10 years, the service accommodated approximately 6,700 riders per game.

“While we are disappointed BroncosRide will not be available for fans, we’re encouraged through talks with RTD that their scaled-up rail services—similar to when the city hosted MLB All-Star Week—will provide reliable means of transportation on gamedays,” Broncos Director of Events & Booking Jon Applegate said. “We’re excited to welcome back all of our fans and encourage them to plan ahead before each game.”

Fans who utilized BroncosRide can use local bus routes or the light rail system, which directly serves the Broncos’ stadium via the Decatur-Federal (W Line) and Empower Field at Mile High (C, E and W Lines) stops.

Below is a list of alternative RTD options for fans:
Light Rail Service
RTD will increase regularly scheduled rail service to accommodate the suspension of BroncosRide service.

  • E and W Line light rail service are convenient options for Empower Field at Mile High, and limited C Line service will be available prior to and immediately after games.
  • The University of Colorado A, B, G and N Line commuter rail service is available to Denver Union Station with a transfer to the C, E and W light rail Lines.

Bus Service
Local bus routes that operate in the vicinity of Empower Field at Mile High:

  • Route 31 (North Federal Boulevard)
  • Route 30 (South Federal Boulevard)

Transfer Service
Bus routes that serve Denver Union Station, include a simple transfer to the light rail:

  • Flat Iron Flyer
  • 0, 9, 10, 15, 20, 32
  • 120X, LD, LX (not on Sundays)

For fans looking to drive to Empower Field at Mile High, the Broncos are unveiling a new Carpool Lot. Located in Lot A, vehicles with a minimum of four people inside can park for $30 on game day. Limited spots are available, and the lot is on a first come, first serve basis. In order to maximize the available space for fans, tailgating is not permitted in the carpool lot.
