What's new on the Eagle P3 Project? Check here for the latest news and updates about the project in general. Check the Construction Information page for traffic impacts.

Safety information and resources

Safety and security are top priorities at RTD and we have a number of programs in place focused on those topics. In addition, we have information available on every aspect of safety and security as it relates to a public transportation agency that you can imagine. It includes everything from staying safe around trains to getting help quickly if you need it. Find it here.

Video: "On track to opening Day"

This video takes us from the start of the biggest P3 transit expansion
project in the U.S. back in August 2010 to where it stands now. All three of Eagle's rail lines are scheduled to open in 2016. See the video here.

2015: Year of transition for Eagle P3

Commuter rail gets much closer to reality in 2015 as construction of the East Rail Line wraps up and testing of trains begins on the tracks between downtown Denver and the airport. But that's just the tip of the iceberg as the Eagle P3 project's three new rail lines are in the homestretch to their 2016 opening days.

Disabled rider views changes he helped bring about

John Barr, a frequent RTD rider who uses a motorized wheelchair due to cerebral palsy, gave input three years ago on the interior design of the new commuter rail cars when a mock-up was on display at Union Station. His input helped lead to wider clearance room for wheelchairs from the entries into the wheelchair area, and to installation of a spring mechanism on the bench seats so they are in the upright position when not in use -- which means a disabled rider won't have to raise the seat bench in order to fit a wheelchair into the space.

John returned to visit the actual cars when the first ones arrive in Denver in December, to see the changes. 9News was there to document the visit. Watch the segment here.
