G Line opening update

The G Line does not have a specific opening date set. 

The Federal Railroad Administration has worked very hard with RTD, and has indicated that our contractor, Denver Transit Partners, needs to make significant progress on the University of Colorado A Line at-grade crossings.

The G Line has the same at-grade crossing technology as the University of Colorado A Line, and DTP has to meet FRA requirements regarding the at-grade crossings on the University of Colorado A Line in order for the G Line to open.

Once those issues are resolved, testing will resume on the G Line and move toward an opening date.

Thank you for your patience during this time. Learn more in the general manager's quarterly news update.
