Hi,
I am moving in to Denver in a few weeks. My work is right in Downtown and I wish to commute to/from work by Light rail as my office is conveniently close to 18th and california light rail station.
Pls suggest studio type apts close to light rail stations as I wish to heavily rely on train for my commute.

Thanks.

you didn't indicate what your budget is or where you prefer to live, however, there are some new apartments near Aspen Grove at the Mineral light rail stop and also some near downtown Littleton called Alexan. Don't know if they have studios or the price. Commute downtown is about 30 minutes from the Mineral stop.

How much do you want to spend?
The rental market in Denver is very tight.
What other attributes in a place are important to you?

Thanks for your reply. My budget is <600$/ month. My preference is basically the time I take to commute to downtown should be less than 45 minutes from where i stay through light rail. Just like the Mineral stop you mentioned.

Thanks for the reply. My budget is <600$/month. In terms of place I wish a decent community with quick access to light rail. I want my journey time to Downtown to be less than 45 mins through lightrail. thanks.

You can make it downtown on the lightrail in under 45 minutes from any stop in the system.

That's extremely low for Denver. You might not find anything for that low that's within walking distance from a light rail, and if you do, you're looking at the bottom of the barrel. There are a few apartments that are within a mile or so walk of the 9 mile station in Aurora (at Parker Rd & I-225), such as Kennedy Ridge (technically in the Denver city limits) that may have <$600 rents. Wouldn't recommend the place though. North Aurora may have more options (look for apartments within walking distances of the park and rides along the various exits of I-225), but you'd have to take the bus, not train.

As a heavy public transit user, I would not necessarily assume that rail is the best option or the only option. Central Denver is the hub with the spokes being many buses and rail come into the City. There are many express, regional, limited and local buses that can get you to downtown quickly. many of these bus routes have frequencies and times of services that is equivalent to the rail and sometimes better. Also, it depends if you are just a 9-5 worker or need to be at work on different shifts. Considering your low budget for rental, you would be better served to find an area that is also well served by buses to downtown.

You have not indicated if you prefer urban or suburban or the type of living lifestyle that you are seeking. You can also broaded your choices by living in Central Denver or closeby, for example. the Baker neighborhood, along Broadway, and have excellent bus as well as rail to Downtown. In addition, from some areas you can even walk or bike to work.

Agreed. <$600 / month in rent won't get you too far in Denver. You might consider someplace along a major bus route which might give you a little more flexibility.
