Home<Denver RTD Light Rail<Union Station (RTD Light Rail Lines C,E Terminal)

Union Station/Lower Downton (Lodo)/Coors Field/16th St. Mall is the terminal of RTD Light Rail lines C and E, although the C runs weekdays only. Compared to the other northern downtown Denver Terminal loop on cities service is abmismal with 15 minute headways during weekday rush hours (each line to the station runs every half-hour, although no station is ever served only every half-hour, each line shares the entirety of it's route with at least one other light rail line). This makes sense though since this branch and the 3 stations on the line too it serve less of the business center of downtown but the newly gentrified Lodo Section with various resturants, Corrs Field, with other station on the brach for Mile High Statium and the Pepsi Center.
The Light Rail Station itself is located on the opposite side of the mainline railroad tracks from the historic Union Station building, the terminal has a two track-three platform layout, with trains discharging their passengers on the eastern platform before continuing beyond the station where the relay tracks are, and re-entering service on the western platform. Their is a fairly narrow island platform, the side platform for trains terminating is extremely large and has the bus loop for the free 16th Street MallRide.
