Denver Union Station is a unique project that brought together many different transportation modes along with new private development to create a truly special place in Denver that connects the city, region and state in one central location. Since the purchase of the historic building in 2001, the Regional Transportation District (RTD), the City and County of Denver (CCD), the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) have worked cooperatively with the public to develop and adopt a number of key decision documents that guide the project.
