The project will add to Colorado's growing transit system by expanding light-rail service south of Denver.

Denver R Line testing begins
21 Jul 2016



USA: The first light rail vehicle ran under its own power on the R Line in Denver on July 19. Denver Regional Transportation District is currently carrying out systems testing on a section of the route, ahead of opening later this year.

The 16·9 km alignment is an extension of I-225 Line from Nine Mile to Peoria, creating an orbital route through Aurora to the southeast of central Denver. R Line services will run for 35·4 km to Lincoln at the southern end of the existing Southeast Line

A Denver Suburb Bets Big on Free Lyft Rides to Light Rail

Dial-a-ride services have long been one of the most common answers to transit’s “first-and-last-mile” problem, especially in low-density areas underserved by buses and trains[...]

RTD says the G line to Arvada, Wheat Ridge is on hold until A line issues are fixed

Despite the ongoing challenges, RTD still promises an on-time rollout of the G line.

"We are still targeting a fall of 2016 opening date," said Genova.

Quite curious that the elaborate structure built over the platform doesn't protect the passengers from weather.

Yeah, indeed. It is kind of a waste to make such an elaborate structure that provides so little protection for the passengers, I don't think it would cost so much more to provide a more decent shelter for the passengers. Maybe even the same if they'd choose to make a less elaborate, but more functional structure, that could have looked great too. And pretty much, most of the stations seem to provide little shelter, I don't know why they do that.

Anyway, The APTA ridership report for the second quarter has been released, with the new commuter system of Denver making its debut on the report. Since line A was opened during the second quarter (april 22nd) making the count incomplete, I take the total ridership for june, that is 501400 passengers. That puts the system just in the top ten, behind of Baltimore, on the 9th place with 845300, and ahead of Salt Lake and Seattle, that are prectically tied on the 11th place at around 370000 (some months SLC is ahead and others is Seattle, although Seattle reports a higher weekday ridership and a much greater growth)

Since Denver is just east of the Great Divide, I was wondering how many hilly sections the light rail has to contend with.
