Colorado

Boulder
Proposed Streetcar

Boulder is currently working on a study for a 4 mile
Boulder Breeze streetcar circulator.

 

Colorado Springs
A downtown consortium called"Downtown Partnership" and the City of Colorado Springs expect to havea trolley system in place between 2001-2002.  As you can see, we're still waiting. A bus rapid transit line was announced in 2010, but still no light rail or trolley. However, the city is studying the possibility of a
starter streetcar line. Results of the study are expected in sometime during the first half of 2010.

Denver

With no undersground sections and no danger of being misclassified as a subway. Denver's light rail system currently consists of five lines covering 63.4 km and 36 stations. Several extensions and new lines are currently in the late planning stations. with the only active construction being the West Line, which will connect Denver with the city of Golden. The 12.1 mile line is expected to open in 2013.

Denver's light rail rolling stock is known world-wide for their sparkly white appearance.

One may wonder, why does a city the size of Denver not have a true subway system in the classic American  Sense. Denver's only subway exists in Union station and alas sports no real transit other than the pedestrian type.

Among other plans for the Denver area is the Colfax Avenue streetcar connecting Denver and Aurora. Currently under study, the line connecting the Anschutz Medical Complex in Aurora with I-25 via the marea's longest street could have a good likliehood of fruition due to wide public support.

FasTracks is the Denver RTD's expansion program and has it's own web page describing routes and teimlines from future rail light rail lines, commuter lines and Denver area roads. But for some, Fastracks is not enough.
