Bike-n-Ride Shelters

Bike-n-Ride shelters provide bicycle parking for transit riders making connections to and from RTD stations. The Bike-n-Ride program makes it easy to combine bus trips and bike rides by using the shelter to complete the first or final mile of your commute. Shelters provide weather-protected storage for bicycles, giving commuters a stress-free option when making connections.
