Commuter rail is a passenger train that can be operated by diesel fuel, or overhead electrical wires or a combination of the two. This transit mode is used for local or regional service, typically of longer distances, operating between a central city and surrounding communities or activity centers. Commuter rail vehicles have a heavier frame and larger body than light rail vehicles, and usually operate in an existing rail corridor along freight and/or passenger lines. The interior is designed to provide a comfortable ride for longer distances with larger cushioned seats much like those found on RTD's Regional and skyRide bus routes.
