Safety Message! Concerns along the G Line commuter rail crossings: Denver Transit Partners, the contractor, have advised us that reports from the crossings attendants frequently show children from the local schools trying to go under the gate arms when they are down, in attempt to cross the tracks, despite all warnings. This is happening especially at Allison Street. PLEASE watch out for the children of our community and spread the word to be cautious around the G Line. Train testing will begin again soon.
