A Growing Need for a
As communities grow, a new passenger train will connect Front Range Coloradans to opportunities, adventure, and each other. Are you ready to leave delays and heavy traffic behind?
We are too, so we’re planning for a future of safe, reliable, and climate-conscious travel.
WHERE: Initially offering service from Fort Collins through Denver and south to Pueblo, the Front Range Passenger Rail (FRPR) intercity train service has the long-term vision of connecting Colorado to New Mexico and Wyoming.
WHY: About 5 million people currently live on the Front Range. In the next 30 years, an additional 3 million people are expected to live and commute along the Front Range. FRPR will provide a relaxed, efficient, and safe transportation option that connects key destinations in our extraordinary state.
WHEN: The FRPR District is currently evaluating routes, stations, service, infrastructure, operations, costs, and financing. The first train could be operational in the next 10-15 years.
HOW: Using existing tracks shared with freight railroads, partnering with transportation providers and elected officials, and leveraging new passenger rail programs and funding established through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law minimizes costs to taxpayers and accelerates the service start date.
