Denver´s Regional Transportation District recently announced launch dates for commuter rail service to downtown Denver´s historic Union Station from the airport.
Beginning on April 22, 2016, at a cost of USD9, visitors will have access to the 23-mile ride giving them a fast and affordable option to get to the heart of the city.
“From a convention standpoint, this really helps to bring our city to the next level when our visitors can connect to our airport with such convenience and value,” said Rachel Benedick, vice president of sales and services for VISIT DENVER, The Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Meeting planners are typically looking for a scenario that is both cost effective and convenient, and this new rail line will feed passengers directly into our convention center area with access to more than 10,000 hotel rooms within walking distance by the end of 2016.”
The rail line will service eight total stations, including another new addition at the airport, the Westin Denver International Airport Hotel. Opening on November 19, 2015, the 519-room hotel is connected to the airport and will feature 27,500 square feet of meeting space accommodating groups of up to 800.
Celebrating more than 106 years of promoting The Mile High City, VISIT DENVER is a nonprofit trade association that contracts with the City of Denver to market Denver as a convention and leisure destination, increasing economic development in the city, creating jobs and generating taxes.
