My Visit to Union Station in Denver
Welcome to Union Station in Denver, Colorado. I can promise there is more to this beautiful train station than meets the eye. This beautiful and busy building is not only a train station, but it is also the main bus depot that provides fast transportation for passengers who wish to commute from the station right to the airport and other surrounding locations.
The nine rail lines that run in and out of this station trail to 53 other stations along Denver’s Southeast, Southwest, West, and East passageways. These railroads lead to all the epic locations that surround the Denver area. These include the theatre district, the sports arena – Mile High Stadium, the 16th Street Mall, and Park Meadows Mall.
The fares to get around are inexpensive and the ride is comfortable and convenient for the everyday commuter or the visitors who are here to roam the city to sightsee. This station also accommodates the Amtrak trains that travel out of the city to other locations such as Chicago and Salt Lake City just to name a few.
The bus routes travel to 125 different locations of the city and if you need to grab a ride somewhere besides the station, you can find many park-n-ride locations spread out through the metro area.
A NEW DEVELOPMENT IN A TRADITIONAL TOWN
The Union Station in Denver is fairly new. This amazing building finished construction and opened ready for business back in May of 2014 and has been a perfect addition and big help to the lovely people of Denver.
Moreover, this building is expanding with more rail lines being constructed soon. The Union Station building in Denver has truly become the heart of Denver as it was built right in the center of this great city.
