Do any of you who live in Highlands Ranch, Lonetree or Parker use the light rail? I will be working at 18th and Champa. Thanks in advance!

I used to use it a lot, and loved it.

Yup. Everytime I have a class downtown, or have to meet the attorney. Even take Light Rail to have dinner at the Chop House before Rockies games.

Here's a link to rtd http://www.rtd-denver.com/.

Click on "schedules" at the top, and then click on the light rail schedules.

Yeah I saw the schedules but I'm asking how true they are to them or if they're always late or inconsistent.

They're accurate and consistent; only time they're not up and running and on schedule is if there's an accident, or derailment, or the like. (It's not like Amtrak, if that's what you're afraid of.)

Yeah that's what I was thinking of. I've talked to people who have used commuter trains in SoCal and they say they get delayed a lot because they share the rails with other trains (freight maybe?) that have priority over them.

The light rail runs, if all is ok, almost to the second. They leave right on time and only time it is different is if something unusual happens.

What sort of odd rules do they have on the light rails? In NYC the MTA started making up their own laws that the cops had to inforce. If you have a bag and you put it on the seat next to you and you're the only one on the train so no one needs the seat you still get a ticket. The newest rule was no drinking of any kind, including the morning coffee, on the train or you get a ticket.

Anything we should know about the Light Rail in advance?

Thanks!
