Parsons East Colfax Avenue Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

The East Colfax BRT corridor will link Denver Union Station, Downtown Denver, adjacent communities, transit routes, and the Anschutz Medical Campus along this key east-west transportation route through the implementation of BRT to promote faster, reliable, safer, attractive, and efficient transit operations, including:

  • 5.5 miles of dedicated center-running bus lanes and 4.5 miles of side-running bus operations
  •  Innovative canopy/shelter design with an iconic look and level boarding
  • Streetscape/landscape design to enhance the entire corridor
  • BRT naming/branding for Colfax and all subsequent Denver-area BRT corridors

A key distinction for the East Colfax BRT project is not only its innovative, state-of-the-art planning approach and iconic design concepts, but also its development of a pragmatic, achievable benchmark for future BRT corridors across the Denver metro area. The project team incorporated best practices and lessons learned from BRT projects across North America and developed innovative concepts tailored specifically to the East Colfax Avenue corridor.
