RTD Celebrates First Anniversary of A Line

RTD is celebrating the first anniversary of the University of Colorado A Line.

The Regional Transportation District (RTD) is celebrating the first anniversary of the University of Colorado A Line. RTD will mark this occasion by holding a rider appreciation day during morning peak hours on Friday, April 21 at Denver Union Station (6:30-8:30am), Peoria Station (6:30-8:30am) and Denver Airport Station (5-7am). At these stations, passengers will receive light refreshments and swag.

While RTD acknowledges that there have been some operational challenges on Denver’s first commuter rail line since it opened April 22, 2016, they would like to honor the many achievements. Those include ridership of nearly 5 million since it opened, 89 percent on-time performance year-to-date, the creation of jobs, investment in our community and the success of the first transit public-private partnership of its kind in operation.

The University of Colorado A Line is a 23-mile commuter rail line connecting Denver Union Station to Denver International Airport with eight stations total.
RTD serves the Denver Metro area by offering safe, clean, reliable, courteous, accessible and cost-effective service in an eight-county service area while providing 100 million passenger trips annually.
