FasTracks is a twelve-year, $6.5 billion public transportation expansion plan, currently under construction, for the Denver-Aurora and Boulder metropolitan areas in Colorado, USA, developed by the Regional Transportation District. The plan calls for six light rail, diesel commuter rail, and electric commuter rail lines with a combined length of 119 miles (192 km) to be opened between 2013 and 2016 to provide commuters an alternative to the region's congested roads and highways. It expands on previous transportation projects, notably T-REX. The plan also includes the expansion of existing light rail stations, the addition of a bus-based rapid transit route between Denver and Boulder, and the addition and expansion of bus routes and parking facilities to support the new rail lines.

They're finally getting lines up to Boulder. I would love to be able to just ride the train down to a game from here.

If CDOT had any sense they would have gone the other way and started the line at Boulder to Louisville and built down.
