W Line Now Operating
The West Rail Line is now open to the public. Whether you are headed to downtown Denver for a ballgame or to Golden to bike the foothills, the W line will take you there. Hop on the train at one of our 11 new stations, sit back, and enjoy the ride.
West Rail Music Video
Now that the W Line is open, spend a couple of minutes taking a look at the construction in a fast-paced video set to music. This video was shown for all the people attending a special event the night before the grand opening ceremony.
Parking at Sheridan Station
Some construction projects may still be underway, so we urge our riders to use caution around any visible construction areas. . Parking will be available on levels 1 through 5. ADA spaces and access is available on level 1 only. Get more information.
Take a Virtual Ride on the W Line from the Front of the Train
Here's a great way to take the first ride on the new West Rail. It's a video that
takes you on the complete ride from the Decatur-Federal Station to the Jefferson County Government Center - Golden Station. The video is sped up 4X so there is no audio. But the 12-mile long trip only takes a little under eight minutes as a result.
Photographer Jim Hill and reporter Nathan Heffel from KUNC FM 91.5 in Greeley put the video together. What's even more cool is the fact that it's shot through the front window of the train.

Lakewood/Dry Gulch Disc Golf Course reopens
The disc golf course at Lakewood/Dry Gulch Park is open to play again and it's new and improved with 21 holes instead of 18 and a redesign of some holes. More information is available here.
Bike the West
Not only does the W line make for a convenient light rail commute, it is a pedestrian and bike friendly line that will serve as a major conduit for cyclists and walkers for decades to come. New bike paths were added in many places along the rail, using a combination of new dedicated bike paths and bike lanes, as well as public streets. Figure out ways you can utilize the bike path by checking out our W line bike route map.
All Artwork Commissioned!
After an extensive process of reviewing a total of 916 applications, ten artists have been selected for commissioning of artwork at 12 locations, including all West Rail stations, windscreens, and the Kipling Bridge. Learn more about the chosen artists on our Artwork of the West Rail page.
As part of the Safe Routes to School grant, the City of Lakewood created this safety video to teach the public important safety tips to remember when near light rail. Join FasTracks Freddy in teaching your children about light rail safety.
