Back in January RiNo launched a free shuttle service for the weekends that brought the industrial darling to a new level. After finding success in RiNo — eTuks — the service behind the shuttle — has decided to launch in Denver’s popular Baker neighborhood around Broadway. The shuttle service — coined the Broadway Circulator— will run for free on Thursday nights along the Broadway corridor.
Starting with a 13-week pilot program, the shuttle will run Thursday nights from six to 10:30 p.m. Sponsored by the Baker Broadway Merchants Association, Xcel Energy, Punch Bowl Social, New Amsterdam Organics and D4 Urban the shuttle is hoped to increase foot traffic and decrease traffic and parking congestion in the area. Making five stops between the Alameda Light Rail Station and 6th Ave., the ideal use of the shuttle is for patrons to leave their vehicles behind and instead travel via bus or Light Rail to the Alameda station and from there hop onto the shuttle. The service will start this week on July 13.
