A free shuttle bus service, operated by the Regional Transportation District (RTD), is known as MallRide. The 16th Street Mall opened in 1982, originally from Market Street to Broadway, and was originally designed by I.M. Pei, the notable architect of the Louvre Pyramid. The Mall was extended from Market Street to Wynkoop Street in 2001 and to Union Station in 2002 to coincide with the completion of the Central Platte Valley (CPV) light rail spur.

MallRide stops at every intersection between Union Station and the 16th Avenue/Broadway intersection, with three stations—Union Station (at Union Station), Market Street (at 16th Street and Market Street), and Civic Center (at 16th Street and Broadway)—providing key connections to other RTD buses.


In addition, MallRide provides connections to light rail, connecting to the C Line at Union Station and to the D Line at Stout and California Streets, at 16th & Stout and 16th & California stations. MallRide service is provided very frequently daily, especially during rush hours. The C Line is a light rail line which is part of the light rail system operated by the Regional Transportation District in Denver, Colorado. ...
