Being safe and responsible is key to enjoying any New Year’s Eve celebration, especially if you enjoy a bit too much bubbly. All of RTD’s light rail and bus services are FREE from 7 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, December 31 until “end of service day” on New Year’s Day, January 1. (actually 2:59 a.m. on January 2).
The fireworks shows on New Year’s Eve will affect light rail service from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. with no light rail service on the D and H light rail lines between the Theatre District/Convention Center and 18th & California/Stout stations or on the L Line between 16th and California/Stout and 20th and Welton Stations.
There will be two extra hours of rail service on the C, E and H Lines to accommodate late-night travelers. Additional service will be operating on these lines throughout the evening on New Year’s Eve until approximately 2 a.m. on January 1, 2019.
Plus, the always free MallRide shuttle will have limited service during the fireworks shows. Here’s more information on RTD’s New Year’s Free Ride program.
