So who here commutes daily (8-5, M-F) and parks at the light rail stations Yale and/or Colorado?

Is Yale always full? Colorado seems large so parking might not be a problem there.

I heard they were thinking about expanding parking at Yale and oh man that would be very good.

I don't know about Yale or Co Blvd. I know there is parking at the Uni stop.

I've never had a problem with Colorado, but usually I just drive to the I-25 and Broadway PnR because I can take ANY southbound train from downtown at the end of the day instead of having to wait for one that runs along the SE line.

I've also never had problems at the University of Denver station, if that helps.

I've found Colorado to generally be full by 8:30 am, though strangely there's been a lot of spots lately. DU and Broadway always have spots though.

The university stop might be too far for me. But thanks!

Hey cowboy, thanks! We are looking at living further south though, Univ. Hills. So I don't think I'll want to go that far.

Dang! So no one here parks at Yale? I'd probably be parking around 7:30am-7:45am or so. Maybe even as late as 8:00am.

So WTMEast is considering moving SOUTH??

I'd say target north of Hampden to Colo. along I-25 if you want to be near Light Rail.

Otherwise the SW line is pretty open north of Mineral.

Another option is to check out the bus lines into the stations. The 24 goes straight up University to light rail, the 40 goes straight up Colorado to light rail, and the 35 goes straight across Hampden to light rail.

I think there used to be a 24L that had more times during rush hour, but I don't see it on RTD's website now.

That's an interesting thought. I will most certainly keep that in mind.

Is University Hills considered south? It looks so central to me. I thought everyone knew by now that I wasn't going to Florida. First there was the law school idea, then the housing/economy collapsed, then I realized Denver is not so bad at all, it's just Thornton that SUCKS.

Oh and 2b? We are pretty much narrowed down on where we want to live, just checking on transport. I like the area either side of I-25 and Yale. Around that area.
