Public Transportation

The Buckley Ranch neighborhood is serviced by two RTD bus lines (the 104X and AA routes). The bus stop is at the intersection of 104th Avenue and Chambers Road--about a 20-minute walk from the neighborhood. The 104X bus route into downtown Denver is about a 1 hour ride and the AA bus route to the airport is about a 30 minute ride.

The 104X and AA Routes

As of January 2019, a day pass to use local bus lines cost $6.00 and a day pass to use local and/or express bus lines cost $10.50. Below are a few of the pros and cons noted by residents who have used the 104X and AA bus routes:



  • For the AA bus route, the Chambers Road stop is the third to last stop before the bus arrives at the airport
  • The AA bus route (east and west bound routes) runs every hour from approximately 2:10am to 10:40pm
  • The 104X (express) bus route between downtown Denver and Chambers/104th is about a 35 minute ride
  • The AA bus routs to/from downtown (via the airport) runs 25 times per day and the bus routes run early and late
  • Reading a book is much more relaxing than driving a car through rush-hour traffic!
  • Employers may subsidize the cost of bus fares


  • The 104X (express) bus route only runs three times in the morning (into downtown) and evening (from downtown)
  • Can’t work late! No 104X busses leaving Union Station after 5:30pm.
  • The travel time on the AA bus routes to/from downtown takes about 2 hours (i.e. a 4-hour round trip!)
  • The $10 cost for an express day pass is not significantly cheaper than the cost of gas and parking
