I-25 & Broadway station is a three-platform RTD light rail station in Denver, Colorado, United States. Operating as part of the C, D, E, F and H Lines, the station was opened on October 8, 1994, and is operated by the Regional Transportation District.[4][5] As the name implies, the station is located at the interchange between Interstate 25 and Broadway in south-central Denver.[6] It is the major transfer point for commuters traveling from Littleton and Englewood on the Southwest Line to the Denver Technological Center on the Southeast Lines.[6]

When the system was first opened in 1994, I-25 & Broadway was the southern terminus for the Central Line, at that time built in the lone corridor in the system.[5] Since then, three new corridors have been constructed. I-25 & Broadway Station is becoming a focal point of a new transit-oriented development on the site of the old Gates Rubber Company factory, just south, east and west of the station.

Service of Lines[edit]

An examination of the public timetables shows that this station is the site of "European style" timed transfer connections during peak periods between southbound C (orange) and H (blue) Line and northbound D (green) Line trains, and after midnight between southbound D and E (purple) Line and miscellaneous northbound trains.

Tracks in this station are laid out in a wye. Trains originating at the yard south of Evans Station and bound for the Southeast Lines bypass I-25 & Broadway platforms, but operate in service from Evans Station. Trains returning to the yard do not operate in service. I-25 & Broadway is the southernmost transfer station for all lines leading north toward the 10th & Osage station.[6]
