Getting Around
Centrally located, Commerce City is minutes from downtown Denver and adjacent to six major highways, Denver International Airport, two railroads, and two new commuter rail lines.

Commerce City residents and businesses have direct access to Denver International Airport – the nation’s 10th largest airport.


Commerce City is served by the Regional Transportation District’s 88, 48, 104X and AA bus routes. Plan your trip online or call 303-299-6000.

The voter-approved Regional Transportation District FasTracks program is a multi-billion dollar plan to build 122 miles of new commuter rail and light rail, 18 miles of bus rapid transit, 21,000 new parking spaces at light rail and bus stations, and enhance bus service for easy, convenient bus / rail connections across the eight-county district.

Commerce City will be served by the North Metro commuter rail line with a station at 72nd / Colorado Boulevard, although construction is not scheduled to begin until after 2020.

Residents also will be able to access the airport and downtown Denver using the East Corridor commuter line, with a station at Central Park Boulevard in Stapleton. The line is under construction and scheduled to be open in 2016.

The Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific Railroads travel through the city. Commerce City was the first in the state to take advantage of federal regulations that allowed for quiet zones to be implemented at railroad and roadway crossings. Since 2008, the city has installed four zones to eliminate traveling trains from blowing their horns in residential areas.

Interstates and major state highways such as I-70, I-270, I-76, State Highway 2, U.S. 85, and E-470 provide easy access to and from the city. The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) maintains interstates and state highways. The E-470 Highway Authority operates the toll road system. Commerce City maintains local city streets and works with both agencies as needed. For statewide road conditions, visit COTrip.

The CDOT is currently studying how to improve transportation along Interstate 70 from I-25 to Tower Road. Commerce City is supportive of expanding the interstate in its current alignment.
