Passengers will be able to ride the RTD University of Colorado A Line starting April 22nd, 2016. The new electric commuter rail, which is larger and faster than light rail, will be able to carry riders from Union Station in downtown Denver to DIA in only 37 minutes. The fare to DIA is a reasonable $9 regardless of where travelers board.
The 23 mile line will serve eight stations including Union Station in downtown, the new Denver Airport Station at the Westin Denver International Airport Hotel, and the new 40th & Colorado station, conveniently located across the street from the Colorado Business Roundtable's offices.
“This project has been made possible through regional collaboration. None of this could have happened without the cooperation and teamwork from our partners who have worked tirelessly to deliver a quality project that will take public transit in the Denver metro area to the next level,” RTD Board Chair Chuck Sisk said in a statement. “We are also very proud of our naming rights partnership with the University of Colorado.”
