The first RTD MetroRide buses are just about ready, and looking great at their assembly plant in Minnesota.

MetroRide will run on a special downtown Denver circulator route similar to the 16th Street MallRide shuttle, except it will only operate during commuting periods on weekday mornings and evenings.

The stations are also visibly under construction.
