Important safety tips for you and your family:
- Do not try to touch or throw objects at the overhead power lines or climb on the power poles — they are powered with 25,000 volts of electricity!
- Never trespass on any train track — it is illegal and dangerous.
- Cross the tracks only at designated crossings, always follow safety signage and obey warning devices like flashing red lights and gate arms.
- Stay alert and look both ways for a train — you may not hear them coming.
- Stay off station platforms until they are open to the public.
For after-hour emergencies, please call 303-299-3911. For additional information, please contact RTD at 303-299-6000 or visit www.rtd-denver.com.
