Downtown Denver:
The Way Our Workforce Moves

The Downtown Denver mobility system supports our workforce traveling to and through the center city. Again this year, more commuters are choosing to walk, ride a bike, and use transit than to drive alone. The results presented in this 13th annual Downtown Denver Commuter Survey confirm that a strong commitment to providing increased access to a variety of transportation options creates a system that moves more people safely, affordably, sustainably, and reinforces the advantage of a center city office location for employees and employers.
