For those residing in the Solstice community, the allure of downtown Denver's shops, restaurants, cultural venues, and sporting events is undeniable. However, navigating through traffic and searching for parking can dampen the excitement of an urban outing. Enter the RTD D Line: a stress-free, environmentally-friendly public transportation option that connects you from Littleton to the heart of the Mile High City.

Starting from Littleton-Mineral Station

Your journey begins at the Littleton-Mineral Station, easily accessible from the Solstice neighborhood by a 15 minute drive.

The Benefits of Taking the D Line

Here's why catching the light rail on the D Line is an excellent choice for downtown Denver excursions:

  • Skip the Traffic: Let the train operator handle the commute as you relax, read, or catch up on emails. You'll bypass the rush-hour congestion that often slows down I-25, Santa Fe, and Broadway.
  • Economical and Eco-Friendly: Public transit saves you money on gas and parking fees while minimizing your carbon footprint. This aligns well with Colorado's ethos of environmental stewardship.
  • Frequency and Reliability: The D Line runs every 15 minutes during peak times, ensuring you don't have to adjust your schedule drastically around train times.

The Downtown Denver Stops

Whether you're heading to a business meeting, a Rockies game at Coors Field, or a night at the theater, the RTD D Line has two convenient downtown stops. You can disembark at 18th and California for a short walk to the Business District, or get off at the 16th and California station to hop onto the Free MallRide shuttle traveling along the popular 16th Street Mall.
