RockiesRide service to all weekend 2010 Rockies home games, and select weekday games including Opening Day Friday, April 9

Light Rail available for all games

Denver – The Regional Transportation District (RTD) offers RockiesRide to all weekend games and the following weekday games: Friday, April 9 (Opening Day); Tuesday, June 22, Wednesday, June 23 and Thursday, June 24 (Red Sox Games); Friday, July 2, (fireworks), Friday, July 30, (Cubs Game) and Friday, September 24, (fireworks). RockiesRide express bus service will get fans to Coors Field 30-60 minutes before the first pitch.
RockiesRide is RTD’s direct bus service to Coors Field from 14 metro area locations, including 13 park-n-Ride lots and Boulder High School. RockiesRide one-way fares range from $3.50 to $4.50, depending on trip origination. Passengers pay cash as they board; transfers, tickets and passes are not accepted.

Every RockiesRide bus is designated with the letter R after a route number, e.g. Route 120R. Buses depart 60 to 115 minutes before game time and arrive 30 to 60 minutes before the first pitch at the Coors Field parking lot on 22nd/Blake, placing riders at the ballpark 30-60 minutes before the first pitch.

Upon arrival at the stadium, the bus driver will announce the route’s row, making it easy to locate the bus for the return trip home. After the game, go to the parking lot at 22nd/Blake, locate the assigned row number for your RockiesRide route and hop on board. RockiesRide buses depart as they fill up, with the last bus leaving 45 minutes after the game ends. Excluding rain delays, buses will not leave Coors Field before the seventh inning.

Light rail
Passengers can take the C or E lines to Union Station and walk to Coors Field. The D, F or H lines go to the 16th/California and 16th/Stout light rail stations, where riders can take the 16th Street FREE MallRide to Market Street Station and walk four blocks to Coors Field.

Although the C and F lines do not operate on weekends or holidays, a special C Line service will operate for Rockies games during the same hours as RockiesRide buses. Regular light rail fares apply.
