Home<Denver RTD Light Rail<16th & California
16th & California is a simple street running station located on the California St in downtown Denver. The Free MallRide Bus connection on the 16th Street Mall can be connected to from the stop. It's around the corner. Like the stops on the parallel line down Stout Street the Light Rail runs in an exclusive lane alongside one side of the street in the opposite direction of the flow of traffic. The stop consists of the ADA ramp at the SW corner of the 16 Street Mall and California. Attached to the ramp is a canopy that has TVMs and covers about a single LRV. To designate a boarding area for longer trains the tactile warning strip on the sidewalk continues south.

The Light Rail station viewed from across California. LRVs go in the opposite direction of the one-way flow of traffic to cause less interference from cars. This strange LRV characteristic is even mentioned in the Colorado State driver's manual.
