Public transportation is a big deal in Denver. The expansion of the Denver Light Rail system provides commuters with multiple options for getting into the heart of the city, traveling to Denver International Airport, moving up Sixth Avenue, commuting to the Denver Tech Center, or heading home to several neighborhoods surrounding and to the south of Denver. Denver's commitment to the light rail system and public transit in general has actually increased the value of homes and condos along the light rail corridors. Light rail trains in Denver provide access to:
6th Avenue West
Lincoln Ave. to the South
Expansion of the light rail system includes connections to Denver International Airport, along I-70 and potentially even the Boulder Turnpike. Light rail trains essentially connect all parts of Denver and the Metro Area with plans for several more enhancements. The light rail system in Denver is one of the most advanced and convenient in the nation and represents a unique value for owners of real estate along the train route. This type of infrastructure is an enormous capital investment in the people, businesses, neighborhoods and communities of Denver.
