Denver opens a new LRT line

On February 24, the Denver Regional Transportation District opened the R Line that offers the rail link through the center of Aurora. The new line extends service from the existing Nine Mile Station north 17 km to Peoria Station connecting to the University of Colorado A Line to Denver International Airport.
The full R Line service will travel 35.4 km from the Lincoln Station to Peoria Station. This project also extends RTD’s current H Line from Nine Mile to the new Florida Station. It is the fourth transit line RTD will open within the last fourteen months.
“The R Line is a signature project for RTD, the City of Aurora, and our region. The line is significant in that it completes another important connection and mobility opportunity on the eastern side of the metro area, connecting commuters to important destinations throughout the line,” RTD General Manager Dave Genova said.
