After 30 years of service, Market Street Station has officially closed its doors in favor of the newly renovated bus concourse at Union Station in downtown Denver. Union Station has seen significant renovations over the last few years to make way for the world-class underground bus concourse. 

The new bus concourse will feature a 22-gate facility that will allow for a new bus departure every 48 seconds! At 1,000 feet in length the new station is as long as three football fields, and can fit nearly three Market Street Stations inside. As impressive as this may sound, the new location will also provide a new host of benefits to those looking to travel to downtown and elsewhere in the Denver metro area. 
Located at 1700 Wewatta Street, the new concourse will feature increased convenience for commuters. The station provides quick access to the Light Rail, free downtown buses like the 16th Street Mall Ride, Amtrak, and the highly anticipated commuter rail line that will reach all the way to DIA to be completed in 2016.
The completion of the new concourse marks a significant achievement for RTD as it moves forward in providing quicker and more convenient access for Colorado residents. As most of us who live in the Denver metro area know, the RTD system is highly used, and in many ways, is significantly under servicing residents in outlying areas. RTD has taken note of the needs of the consumers as well as the needs of the state and it's infrastructure. As part of the effort to reduce Colorado's carbon footprint, RTD is increasing its efforts to provide more readily available public transit to more areas surrounding Denver. This increased effort has proved to be necessary and beneficial to many Colorado residents, and it will only improve over the next few years!
