I am new to the Denver forum, I am from NYC.

Question: Along the light rail, which station do most Asian commuters get off at? And is there an Asian supermarket/ restaurants in the vicinity? Apts or Houses?

All answers will be appreciated

All Asians get off at Alameda, all blacks get off at 30th and Downing, the whites get off at Belleview, and the Hispanics... well, we don't let them on the train. Seriously, do you realize how bad the wording of your question sounds? The two most Asian parts of Denver I am familiar with are the Alameda/Federal area and the Havana corridor between Mississippi and Parker in Aurora (primarily Korean)-- neither of which is right by the light rail. Also in downtown Denver there's a small building called "Sakura Square."

Question #2: Where do the students commuting to the Auraria campus mostly live (along the RTD Light rail)?

Is the Colfax at Auraria Station the only stop for the Auraria campus? If so, where along the D line to most students get off? What is the extent?

My guess would be 20th-Welton to 30th-Downing in the Five Points neighborhood

Keep in mind, the light rail is new, it doesn't go everywhere, and is it's just one of many transportation options in Denver. It's not like New York City where everybody takes the subway everywhere to get around. Denver is still a driving city pretty much-- that and busses. Auraria students live literally all over the metro area and commute in to the campus to go to classes. It's pretty much a commuter campus, not a traditional residential college.

The RTD Lightrail is a very dangerous place to be on.

I myself have been victim of RTD Police Transit authority harrassment several times even when I had a ticket. The police would consistently come around and re-check it and once I had accidentally missed my stop and I received a fine. I started arguing and received another fine.

I saw a few people get the police called on them for arguing with the RTD Transit Police.

Otherwise it is a wonderful service, but be very careful to not upset the authorities or you may end up going to jail.

Just behave yourself? What don't question something which is patent abuse of an exaggeration of authority? Piffle. You can live with your head down, but not me, sir.

Maybe you should check out Portland Oregon. The authorities don't pay enough attention to the light rail there and crime has taken it over. I'd rather have my ticket checked then have drug deals going down in the seat next to me. That's just me.
