The RTD has evolved over the decades into a dependable on time class act in public transportation. Also, most workers were spot on helpful.

Denver City gets a big thumbs up for their free 16th Street Mall shuttle that runs from Union Station to Civic Hall. It is clean, frequent, and free and makes visiting Denver city centre an easy experience.

There are many scenic train rides in Colorado- I can't post a link, but search for 7 GORGEOUS SCENIC TRAIN RIDES THROUGH COLORADO. Was in 303 magazine. In winter there is also a train from Denver to Winter Park ski resort.
