Public Transportation

 
The North Range Village and Foxton Village neighborhoods are serviced by two RTD bus lines (the 104X and AA routes). The bus stop is at the intersection of 104th Avenue and Blackhawk Street--the south east corner of the neighborhood. The 104X bus route into downtown Denver is about a 1 hour ride and the AA bus route to the airport is about a 30 minute ride.

The 104X and AA Routes

As of May 2016, a day pass to use local bus lines cost $5.20 and a day pass to use local and/or express bus lines cost $9.00. Below are a few of the pros and cons noted by Harvest Meadows residents who have used the 104X and AA bus routes:

 

Pros:

  • For the AA bus route, the Blackhawk Street stop is the fourth to last stop before the bus arrives at the airport
  • The AA bus route (east and west bound routes) runs every hour from approximately 3:30am to 10:30am
  • The 104X (express) bus route between downtown Denver and Chambers/104th is about a 35 minute ride
  • The AA / AF bus routs to/from downtown (via the airport) runs 25 times per day and the bus routes run early and late
  • Reading a book is much more relaxing than driving a car through rush-hour traffic!
  • Employers may subsidize the cost of bus fares

Cons:

  • The 104X (express) bus route only runs four times in the morning (into downtown) and evening (from downtown)
  • Can’t work late! No 104X busses leaving downtown after 5:25pm.
  • The travel time on the AA / AF bus routes to/from downtown takes about 2 hours (i.e. a 4-hour round trip!)
  • The $9 cost for an express day pass is not significantly cheaper than the cost of gas and parking
