RTD's commuter rail maintenance facility also earned a LEED® Gold Certification in 2015.
On April 22, 2016, the 23-mile electric commuter rail between downtown Denver Union Station and Denver International Airport – officially opened to the public.
The University of Colorado A Line contains eight stations along the route and uses new rail cars that are a first-of-their kind in Denver with level boarding to better accommodate travelers with luggage and accessibility needs. The cars reach top speeds of 79 mph and can carry up to 200 passengers.
The Eagle P3 project also includes the Gold Line between Denver Union Station and Arvada/Wheat Ridge; an initial segment of the Northwest Rail Line to South Westminster, called the B Line; and the LEED Gold certificated Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility (CRMF). Using the Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain model, or DBFOM, the DTP will also operate and maintain the University of Colorado A Line, G Line, B Line and the CRMF for the next 28 years.
In July 2016, Fluor announced the completion and opening of the six-mile B Line from Denver's Downtown Union Station to Westminster Station located in the growing Denver-Boulder corridor. The new B Line transports riders from the historic center of Westminster to the dynamic Union Station Transit Center, where they can connect to the C, E and W light rail lines, the new University of Colorado A Line to Denver International Airport, as well as local and regional buses.
