Local communities and citizens play an important role in keeping our transit system safe. As a vital part of Transit Watch, we ask for your help with reporting safety and security concerns to RTD Transit Police.
Union Station has a long and diverse history in Denver, serving as a central welcoming point for tourists, neighbors, employees, and residents alike. Its historical prominence fosters a positive first impression when visitors depart the train from DIA, the nearby light rail, or the bus station. Since its $500 million renovation in 2014 and subsequent investment by developers to create an inviting mixed-use environment for downtown residents and businesses, Union Station has elevated the entire city and region, far beyond its immediate surroundings. However, we have reached a critical inflection point in the history of the Union Station area, in other parts of LoDo and Denver, and we need the assistance of the city and other leadership to help change its direction.
Over the past two years, we have observed with growing alarm the slow, unabated degradation of this amazing community, exacerbating fears for what may become of our downtown if we do not take drastic action and implement immediate, consistent measures to make it once again a clean, safe and compassionate area.
