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.
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.
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.
Not really a tram: A CityRoamer "road train", which looks like a modern tram but is actuallya bus, will be used as a free shuttle system throughout the city. The first"line" will begin in Broomfield in 2001.
Fort Collins Heritage Trolley
Fort Collins' museum trolleyis more like a heritage trolley that's also used for public transport. The streetcars run on spring and summer weekends along Mountain Avenue. The 1.5 mile line re-opened in 1985.
