Art-n-Transit

A rider's guide to public art on RTD's transit system

About Art-n-Transit

As you ride RTD, you’ll notice two distinct types of public art, art enhancements and site-specific pieces. Art enhancements are elements incorporated into the design of the transit station. These include windscreens, benches, canopies, railings, and other basic architectural features that provide functional and artistic benefits and make stations and terminals easily identifiable.

Site-specific commissioned art includes murals, mosaics, sculptures, and other imaginative installations created by artists to produce unique pieces that reflect the surrounding community and add an identifying element to the neighborhood.
