Backers believe this Front Range passenger rail plan is the real deal

Source: CDOT
With high growth projected along the Front Range and increasing congestion along I-25, a Front Range passenger rail system has long been the object of transportation aspirations. A feasibility study expected to launch this fall is bringing new hope to the vision of Front Range passenger rail, especially since the proposal has backing from Colorado Governor Jared Polis and CDOT Executive Director Shoshana Lew.

In May the Southwest Chief & Front Range Passenger Rail Commission, along with CDOT, announced an RFP to study the feasibility of Front Range Passenger Rail. The study will analyze different multimodal options for service linking Fort Collins, Denver, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo. The system could be funded through a ballot referendum vote on a regional transportation authority or special tax district.
