Getting Around Without a Car

RTD Buses and Trains

RTD is an excellent option for getting to MLB All-Star activities. Patience and planning will be essential with the large crowds expected. Customers can plan ahead by visiting RTD-denver.com to find schedules and ticketing options. And remember your mask: masks are still required when riding RTD services.

The 16th Street Mall Ride is a free, hybrid vehicle that travels up and down the tree-lined retail core of downtown Denver which is home to hotels, restaurants, office buildings, residences and public spaces. Hop on at any intersection on 16th St between Civic Center Station and Union Station - both stops provide access to other bus and train lines. 16th St is a few short blocks from the Convention Center, the Denver Performing Arts Complex and Coors Field.

Ride App Pick-Up and Drop-Off Locations

For Coors Field area - Market St between 21st and 22nd

For Convention Center area - 14th between Stout and Arapahoe

Green Walking Path

The Green Walking Path is a route that connects All-Star Week venues and interesting sights in between.



Denver is one of the country's fittest cities, and this is especially true where the skinny rubber meets the road. A web of hundreds of miles of dedicated bike paths weaves through Denver and its edges.

Bicycle parking will be available at Coors Field at Gate E and near the Colorado Convention Center at 14th and Stout. 

Electric Scooters

Electric Scooters are available for rent through mobile apps and ridden at the rider's own risk, who must follow the following guidelines.

  • Electric Scooters, whether rented or personally owned, must follow the rules of the road and local laws when in use.
  • Electric scooters may only be ridden where bicycles are permitted to ride and are not permitted to be ridden on sidewalks unless actively parking or disembarking.
  • Users must observe and respect all designated “no ride/no parking areas."
  • All scooters must be parked in a manner that does not impede pedestrian paths in the right of way (sidewalks and streets) or block the boarding or departure of transit users.


Rickshaws, pedal-cabs, bike-taxis - no matter what you call them, these mountain-bike-style tricycles pulling passenger cabs are the slickest way to get around downtown and LoDo, especially on game days. Drivers provide safe rides to your desired destination and can also provide tours that show off downtown Denver highlights. Simply hail a ride in person for about $2 per city block.
