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.
The commuter rail will open with quiet zones in place along the entirety of the line, although horns will continue to be used in emergency situations; 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; or if a train must use automatic train control.
The G Line is part of RTD’s 2004 voter-approved FasTracks plan to expand transit across the Denver metro region Read the 2016 RTD FasTracks Fact Sheet (PDF) and is part of a larger project called the Eagle P3 project which includes the East Corridor transit line to Denver International Airport.
