RTD will soon begin test runs of the N Line, the 13-mile commuter rail that will provide service from Union Station through Denver, Commerce City, Northglenn and eventually north Adams County.
With two of the seven stations located in/near Mapleton, 88th Avenue and 104th Avenue, RTD is partnering with Mapleton to raise awareness about safety on and near trains.
Representatives from RTD met with Mapleton’s Transportation Department to discuss the very important issue of commuter rail safety. Staff learned about bus safety protocol at rail crossings, the emergency call system at stations, and the various road signs seen along the N Line route.
RTD is encouraging parents to talk with their children about how to be safe around trains. If you have questions or would like to request more information, please contact RTD Public Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 303.299.2673.
