I am looking for suggestions on safe areas where I can get a 4-bedroom newer/renovated home for under $350,000 with a 20-30 minute commute to LoDo. Prefer to take public transit so close to a park & ride is a plus.

Adams County, Northgleen, Thornton, or Westminster. The Park & Ride lots along I-25 and the Boulder Turnpike all have frequent express bus service, that will get you to LoDo in about 20 min. Add 10 min. to drive to the Park & Ride.

Maybe the Green Mountain area of Lakewood near the Cold Spring Park-n-Ride? That area will eventually have light rail, too. Homes there generally aren't newer, but you might be able to find something renovated.

Are any of those really 20-30 minutes from Denver? I don't think so. Double that time or more if public transportation as required is involved.

I don't think that people appreciate how much it costs to live in or close to Denver itself, but if you work in the city spending a few more bucks pays for itself.

20 mins / 8.43 miles
21 mins / 12.28 miles
32 mins / 18.52 miles

Please do not doubt me. I would not write it if it was not true.

It really depends -- transit is actually fairly quick depending on location. I occasionally take the bus from downtown to the Cold Spring Park-n-Ride. The ride isn't too bad since the express bus doesn't make any stops along the way. It's not more than 20-25 minutes unless there is bad weather or an accident on the freeway. It's funny to me that it takes pretty much the same amount of time as it takes for me to ride the bus from my house to downtown (~5 miles) but that bus has stops along the way.

Those are some pretty specific numbers and they might be correct or they might be way off, there are so many factors in the equation.

Google maps says Golden to Denver is 15.3 miles and 25 minutes, 35 with traffic. When you ask it to calculate public transportation it jumps to over an hour.

They would be completely accurate because they are tied to specific properties.

None of them are in Golden.
