RTD G-line receives federal approval for next phase of testing after delays

The long-delayed G-line commuter rail service to Denver’s western suburbs received Federal Railroad Administration approval to begin the next phase of testing, according to a Friday news release from the Regional Transportation District.

Testing starts Friday and will continue to increase until simulating a full daily service schedule of nearly 21 consecutive hours a day.

“We are pleased to have arrived at this phase in the testing schedule, and we continue to appreciate the patience of the public, businesses and leaders in the communities along the G Line as we work through all of the necessary details,” said RTD CEO and General Manager Dave Genova. An opening date for the G Line has not yet been announced.

During testing, the public is asked to abide by all the safety signs and respect potential closures of crossings along the route.

As many as three trains will be running every day, operating every half hour as early as 3:30 a.m. through 1 a.m. the next day.
