What is the Lone Tree Link?
The Link is a free shuttle service that connects key employment centers along Park Meadows Drive with restaurants, retail, and the RTD transit system. Starting in August 2017 the Link will also begin piloting on demand transit through the Uber app in addition to the free shuttle service along Park Meadows Drive.
Innovative Public-Private Partnership
The Link is a free service provided by a collaborative public-private partnership of five Lone Tree organizations that are working together to create a vibrant and healthy community. The partnership is a quintessential Lone Tree example of strategic investments that benefit the economy and contribute to our high quality of life.
Reliable Last Mile Connection from Light Rail to Work
With convenient service every 10 minutes, the Lone Tree Link brings employees from the Lincoln light rail station to their place of employment. It's a reliable connection to daily destinations and appointments for the estimated 4,500 employees who work along Park Meadows Drive.
With the expansion of Link to include on demand transit through Link On Demand this level of high quality last mile service is now availible to everyone who lives, visits, and works in the City of Lone Tree.
Encouraging Economic Development
Lone Tree is a great place to do business. Because the Link service is designed specifically for commuters' needs, it acts as an employee benefit for the participating organizations. These major employers have come together to help workforce recruitment to the area and reduce traffic impacts. It's just another example of how Lone Tree strives to be the most business-friendly community in Colorado.
Maintaining a Quality Community
The service is an example of the City of Lone Tree's proactive approach to preparing for and encouraging future economic growth and to mitigating related traffic impacts. It's an innovative pilot program, where the City can test new ways to alleviate traffic for a relatively small investment of public money. The City and the partners behind the Link are investing in Lone Tree to assure it remains a premiere community for both businesses and residents.
