RTD Station Development
Public transportation is essential to creating connecting neighborhoods. As the cornerstone in the Corridor of Opportunity, Globeville and Elyria-Swansea are in a unique location that will be home to several light rail stations via the East, North and Gold Rail Lines. The rail lines will not only enhance the community’s connection to other parts of the city but it will transport Denverites and tourists to and from Denver Union Station, Denver International Airport, National Western Stock Show and Arvada with connecting transportation options at Denver Union Station. These plans are part of the Eagle P3 Projects approved by the voters in November 2004.
