Front Range Passenger Rail

A new transportation option for Colorado's Front Range.

A Growing Need for a Transportation Solution

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) inter-city train service has the long-term vision of connecting Colorado to New Mexico and Wyoming.

WHY: From 2020 to 2050, 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.

Front Range Passenger Rail District

The FRPR District extends from the Wyoming to New Mexico border, spanning portions or the entirety of the 13 counties near Interstate 25.
