Skip parking at the stadium and take advantage of RTD's bus and rail system. On gameday, all you need is a local day pass to jump on the A-Line commuter rail at Union Station in downtown Denver heading east bound. Exit the commuter rail at Central Park Station and transfer to the RTD Route 62 bus. Take the bus all the way to the DICK'S Sporting Goods Park stop on the northwest side of the stadium. Estimated travel time from the Union Station stop is approximately 30 minutes.
This season, fans will be asked to pass through metal detectors before having their ticket scanned. All items will need to be taken out of pockets, and bags will be examined by a staff member as fans enter the stadium. Bags must be 14”x14”x6” or smaller to be allowed in the gates. Please arrive early to allow ample time for security screening!
