RTD FasTracks Program is a multi-billion dollar comprehensive
transit expansion plan to build 122 miles of new commuter rail and

at light rail and bus stations, and enhance bus service for easy,
convenient bus/rail connections across the eight-county district.
The Fas Tracks program includes two projects that are already
completed— the W Line to Golden (opened in 2014) and
Denver Union Station (opened in 2015). 2016 was a big year
for public transportation in the Denver metro area, with the
opening on the A Line to the airport, the G Line to Arvada/
Wheat Ridge, the R Line through Aurora, the B Line to south
Westminster and the Flatiron Flyer bus rapid transit service from
Denver to Boulder.
In addition the Fas Tracks plan includes future projects such as
extensions to the Southeast, Southwest and Central rail lines,
the completion of the Northwest Rail Line, and the North Metro
Rail Line to Thornton/Northglenn (scheduled to open in 2018).
RTD’s transit system covers over 2,000 square miles with six rail
