“The opening of the University of Colorado A Line is a historic milestone towards the completion of RTD’s FasTracks program and continues our success rate of opening major infrastructure projects,” said General Manager and CEO of RTD, Dave Genova. “We continue to transform the region and the University of Colorado A Line will connect the Denver metro area to the world.”
“The success we are experiencing with the opening of five new lines this year is due to regional collaboration. None of this would be possible without the cooperation and teamwork from our partners who have worked tirelessly to deliver a quality project that will take public transit in the Denver metro area to the next level.” said General Manager and CEO of RTD, Dave Genova.
“Safety is our top priority, and the University of Colorado A Line is no exception. We are proud to be one of the first transit systems to implement Positive Train Control,” said General Manager and CEO of RTD, Dave Genova. “We have also completed months of testing and extensive outreach to the surrounding communities and schools to remind people about the importance of being safe around trains.”
“The opening of the University of Colorado A Line represents another giant step in fulfilling the RTD Board’s commitment to completing the FasTracks program,” said RTD Board Chair, Tom Tobiassen. “2016 is an exciting year with the opening of four rail lines and one bus rapid transit line that will transform the way that people travel.”
“The impact that the opening of the University of Colorado A Line will have on the Denver metro area and the entire state of Colorado is unprecedented,” said RTD Board Chair, Tom Tobiassen. “The Eagle P3 project is one of the most ambitious transit projects in the world and a key investment in the future of the region.”
“Our vision has always been to build a multimodal system that supports the transit needs of the growing Denver metro area,” said RTD Board Chair, Tom Tobiassen. “The opening of the FasTracks projects helps us bring that dream closer to reality. The University of Colorado A Line is a key factor in connecting communities with transit and allowing people to travel from their homes to anywhere around the world.”
