Is the Denver Rail wheelchair friendly?

August 10, 2020

When leaving your home using a mobility aid, it’s important to know what services are available to assist with transportation.

Denver is extremely proud to say that all RTD buses, including the Free MallRide, Free MetroRide, and rail vehicles, are accessible for mobility aids such as wheelchairs, electric scooters, segways, walkers, and crutches. Bus and rail operators are trained to assist passengers with disabilities boarding or exiting the vehicle.

Customers using a wheelchair must use the designated securement area and may secure or unsecure their wheelchair without assistance from the operator. Customers may also utilize operator assistance for securement–RTD provides “Secure Here” stickers and “Stoke Straps” for the customer to indicate how and where securement straps should be attached to the wheelchair. To obtain stoke straps, ask the operator or call 303-299-4056.
