July 22 Update: The Regional Transportation District (RTD) has announced that crossing attendants who have flagged the at-grade crossings on the RTD G Line will soon be removed in a controlled and phased approach pending final FRA approval. To ensure public safety:
* Be aware of – and obey – all signs and safety devices such as gate arms and flashers. 
* If a train passes and the gates remain down, please be patient. There may be another train coming from a different direction. 
* Always look both ways before crossing the tracks.

The G Line commuter rail service brings faster, more frequent service to Denver, Arvada and Wheat Ridge, offering greater connections to more destinations. Travel between Arvada and Union Station takes just 20 minutes!

G Line Overview

Rail Safety Tips

  • 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.

Quiet Zones

The commuter rail opened with quiet zones in place along the entirety of the line, although horns will continue to be used if maintenance workers, pedestrians or vehicles are on or near the tracks; if there are issues with gate timing at any of the G Line’s 16 crossings; if a train must use automatic train control; or in emergency situations.  

Background

The G Line is an 11.2-mile electric commuter rail transit line that will connect Denver Union Station to Wheat Ridge, passing through northwest Denver, Adams County and Arvada. There are eight stations: Denver Union Station, 41st/Fox, Pecos, Federal, Gold Strike, Olde Town Arvada, Arvada Ridge and Ward Road.
