Share your thoughts on possible future Front Range Passenger Rail

The Southwest Chief & Front Range Passenger Rail Commission staff, in coordination with CDOT, recently released a survey on potential Front Range Passenger Rail Service from Fort Collins to Pueblo. The two partners are considering how passenger rail service could meet the demands of our rapidly-growing State. Growth projections cited in the survey include:
  • If no improvements are made to the I-25 corridor, vehicle travel times are expected to double in the next 20 years. Passenger rail from Fort Collins to Pueblo could meet the demands of our growing state. 
  • Over 83% of Colorado’s population lives along the Front Range. In the next 25 years, the Front Range is forecast to grow from 4.9 million people in 2020 to 6.6 million in 2045, a 35% increase.
  • Larimer and Weld Counties together will grow 65% from 0.7 million to nearly 1.2 million people. El Paso County will grow 39% from 0.7 million to 1.1 million persons. Metro Denver will grow 27% from 3.3 million to 4.2 million people.
