N Line Officially Opens

At long last the N line has opened!  Though COVID-19 restrictions limited the celebration, on Sept. 21 a VIP train  passed through stations in each city along the line where station ribbon cutting ceremonies were held in honor of the opening of N Line service. 

The line officially opened to the public at approximately 12 p.m. with RTD offering free rides to the public through Sunday, Sept. 27.

The 13-mile rail line will connect the north metro area and downtown Denver, with stops in Northglenn, Thornton, Commerce City, the National Western Complex and Union Station. Eventually, the line will extend north to Highway 7, as funds are available.

Trains will run every 30 minutes at all times during service hours. The two-car commuter rail vehicles on the N Line have seating for 91 passengers in each car, two ADA-compliant seating areas, and spaces for luggage, skis and bikes.
