The G Line is ready to roll

After years of delays, the G line is finally launching its services this week. It will be ready to ride on Friday, April 26. Rides will be free from April 26 through May 11. The regular fare will be $3 for three hours of riding after May 11.

The new G Line will run north from Union Station in Denver, through Olde Town Arvada, then west to Wheat Ridge. The new train will be beneficial in connecting Denver’s western suburbs to downtown.

It will also offer riders easier access to Denver International Airport by way of the A Line, which commuters can transfer to at Union Station.
