Good news for people who wish to bring rail transit to Northern Colorado: the existing Southwest Chief Commission will expand its mission to "facilitate the future of a Front Range passenger rail system that provides ... service in and along the Interstate 25 corridor." The Commission will expand to 13 members, adding and diversifying the representatives. Potential stops for the rail line would be Fort Collins, Loveland, Longmont, Boulder, Denver, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs and Pueblo. The bill now waits for Governor Hickenlooper's signature.
CDOT has studied a regional rail service along I-25 as part of the North I-25 Environmental Impact Statement: https://www.codot.gov/projects/north-i-25-eis/north-i25-commuter-rail-update
