New RTD Trains Coming this Summer – Stay Safe Around Commuter Rail

Safety is the number-one priority of the Regional Transportation District (RTD). This summer, new commuter rail trains will be running along the B Line to Westminster (approximately 71st & Lowell) and the G Line through Arvada to Wheat Ridge.

Though RTD light rail and commuter rail share similarities, such as being powered by overhead electric wires, they are two very different technologies. It is important for students, parents and faculty to understand how to stay safe around this new train system. Below are some key safety messages to learn and share with your friends and family.

·         Never touch or throw objects at the overhead wires – they are powered with 25,000 volts AC and can be deadly.

·         Use designated pedestrian areas when crossing a track – other areas are considered trespassing and are extremely dangerous.

·         Follow safety signs and warning devices, such as flashing red lights and gate arms.

·         Pay attention and look both ways for a train — you may not hear them coming.

·         Stay off the train station platforms until they are open to the public.

·         Once stations are open, stay back from the platform ledge and behind the yellow warning strip.
