DENVER - RTD is opening its new light rail Friday and they've got freebies and deals for you.
The W line runs west from Denver's Union Station to the Federal Center to the Jefferson County Government Center in Golden.
The W line opens Friday (April 26) around 10 a.m.
On Friday, everyone rides the W line for free.
On Saturday, all light rail lines are free.
And if you're on Facebook, like RTD Denver's page and you'll get two free tickets to ride light rail or the bus in the future. The tickets are good for a free one-way ride and they don't expire until December 31. The tickets can also be used as credit toward a Sky Ride ticket to the airport.
To get the free tickets, like RTD-Denver's Facebook page (http://on.fb.me/14fnyWv), then click on the "get your free rides" button. You should get a form to fill out. RTD officials said they're mailing out the free tickets about once a week.
