Getting Around RiNo by Bike, Bus, & Light Rail

DriveTrain is conveniently located on Brighton Boulevard, one of RiNo’s main thoroughfares, and just blocks from Larimer Street’s shops, restaurants, and bars, so you’ll find it easy to walk to most neighborhood attractions. Our residents also love that RiNo’s two-way bike lanes (marked, cleverly, by a rhinoceros riding a bicycle) make cycling around the neighborhood safe and easy. If you’re looking for a longer ride, hop on the South Platte River Trail at 31st and 38th Street. The 28.5-mile multi-use trail follows the Platte River through Denver, passing through urban landscapes and grasslands.

If you’re traveling a longer distance, the bus and the light rail are your best bets—in fact, in terms of Denver apartments near the light rail, DriveTrain ranks high. The bus stop is just steps outside DriveTrain, at 33rd St. and Brighton Boulevard, and gives you access to the 48 bus (the southbound bus stop is on the east side of Brighton Boulevard, and the northbound bus is just a half a block up and across the street, on the west side of Brighton).

The closest light-rail stop is at 28th and Blake Street, a little more than 10 minutes away on foot. From there you can catch the A line, which will get you to the airport in about 30 minutes and to Union Station, where you can connect to all other lines, in about 10 minutes.

Both Denver’s light-rail and bus systems are served by RTD (short for Regional Transportation District), so be sure to download the RTD MyRide app. You can use it to buy tickets and passes in advance, scan and ride using your mobile barcode, and manage your account.
