Planning For Regional Transit Along The Front Range

Redevelopment plans for Denver's Union Station could create a hub for a regional transit system that connects the growing Rocky Mountain region.

"Imagine a future where any citizen can take a 15-minute or shorter walk to the nearest bus or rail stop and be on her way to ski in Vail, to do business in Cheyenne, to DIA for a flight to Paris or to visit relatives in Albuquerque. The plans for developing Denver's Union Station, and the recent opening of RTD's southeast light rail line, offers us a glimpse of this future, one that preserves the natural amenities we love while steering us away from mind-numbing traffic congestion."
