DENVER (AP) -- Transportation officials say downtown Denver's newest bus service will be called FreeMetroRide.
The Regional Transportation District says the service is expected to debut in the spring, traveling from Union Station to Civic Center Station along 18th and 19th streets. It will provide an alternative to the Free MallRide on 16th Street, with fewer stops and faster travel time.
But it will only operate during peak hours -- 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Phil Washington, RTD's general manager, tells The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/186dApb) the service "will be a great complementary option for connecting from one end of the downtown to another."
