RTD announces the opening of the EFR Line Extension


Below are approved quotes about the EFR Line Extension. To request an interview or more information, please contact our Public Relations Department.

“The Southeast Rail Extension provides walkable access to light rail and serves as a model for mobility, access and smart growth. We are grateful to our local partners for their cooperation, collaboration and unprecedented funding contributions that allowed us to expedite construction by as much as 20 years. We commend our partner and construction contractor, Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Inc., for their commitment to completing this project on time and within budget.”

"RTD is grateful for the amazing local collaboration that made this extension possible. By providing additional connections to this rapidly growing part of the region, we are creating new possibilities and setting in motion what will be a powerful economic driver in the south metro Denver community"

"Extension of the E, F and R light rail lines offers important access and mobility opportunities for the south metro area, and connects commuters to important destination throughout the region."

"Completion of the Southeast Rail Extension is a testament to the entities and individuals that worked so hard to finish the project on schedule and on budget."

"This is one more option we can offer passengers for reaching places where they can work, play, and live."

"The completion of the Southeast Rail Extension is a story of collaboration and perseverance. Without the contributions of public and private funding partners, we would not be celebrating the opening of these three stations. Lone Tree has witnessed firsthand how investments in transportation infrastructure have improved the quality of life for existing residents and businesses and has attracted top tier employers to the City. It’s worth noting Sky Ridge Medical Center, Charles Schwab, and Kiewit chose to build their campuses adjacent to the new Sky Ridge Station."

"This project started more than 20 years ago with an inspired vision for the future; and it was realized through persistence and strong partnership and collaboration with local jurisdictions, developers, our business community, RTD and the Federal Transit Authority"

"Transportation and economic development go hand in hand. This extension and the three new light rail stations will enhance end-of-line conditions for commuters, support 500 acres of mixed-use development and be a catalyst for new employment and economic development opportunities in Denver's South Region."

"The Southwest Rail Extension is a symbol of progress and expansion for our region. It affords a unique opportunity to support this world-class region as it attracts high-caliber business and encourages smart development."

"We at RidgeGate are tremendously grateful to our many partners that helped make this extension a reality including RTD, the City of Lone Tree, Douglas County, Southeast Public Improvement Metropolitan District/Denver South TMA and also to Sky Ridge Medical Center and Charles Schwab who built their campuses and trusted that we would deliver on our promise to get this transit project done."
