RTD's University of Denver (1901 E. Buchtel Blvd.) and Colorado Boulevard (4298 E. Colorado Center Dr.) light rail stations have served the surrounding communities and commuters for nearly a decade. But these stations remain "backdoors" to their neighborhoods, rather than visible gateways. It is time these stations transition from commuter stations to integrated mobility hubs and active local destinations.
The Multi-Station Plan and Mobility Study for Colorado and University Stations, launched by Transportation Solutions in cooperation with the City and County of Denver, will address improvements in transportation and place-making at the stations and within the surrounding neighborhoods, and will support the development of innovative, vibrant and walkable station areas. The project launched in late summer 2016 and is scheduled to conclude by May 2017.
Transportation Solutions has completed the final report for the University and Colorado Multi-Station Plan and Mobility Study.

“Pop-up” events took place at both light rail stations during the week of October 17-21. These events were fantastic opportunities to engage with train riders as they commuted to work, school, or other local amenities. Many of the folks who took time to provide comments ride the train every day.
Additionally, project leaders have presented directly to numerous neighborhood, business, and student organizations in the area, including: DU Graduate Student Council, University Hills Neighborhood Organization, DU Sustainability Committee and more.
