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.
Get around the traffic by taking Lyft to DICK’s Sporting Goods Park. Have a driver pick you up before the game and get dropped off right outside Gate G then make your way in and cheer the Burgundy Boys to three points.
