DPD offers the following tips:
- Utilize mass transit – RTD provides many options for transit. Check out the best route by visiting www.rtd-denver.com.
- Carpool – either with a designated driver or a ride share service. Fewer cars on the roads and highways means less traffic, plus it removes the risk of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol – making it safer for all! Please ensure you enter and exit ride share vehicles in safe areas and away from traffic.
- Allow extra time – If driving, plan for extra time to arrive and park.
- Ride your bike, or use bike sharing – There is bicycle parking around Coors Field near Gates A, B and E.
