At last week's Southwest Chief & Front Range Passenger Rail Commission (SWC&FRPRC) meeting, CDOT presented modeling data related to potential routes and stations for the Front Range Passenger Rail project. Though no official routes or schedules have been chosen, CDOT studied what was called the BNSF corridor between Fort Collins and Pueblo. Based on the modeling expectations, CDOT estimates there could be more than 9,000 people riding the rails along the Front Range.

The project is still in the study phase. Funding has not been identified, but the next step may be for an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
