Join Tom “Dr. Colorado” Noel and RTD master guide Ryan Mulligan for a summertime tradition. Our original plan was to ride RTD's new G Line out west. As you may have heard, this train is not yet ready for public use! So we're going to check out part of the new R Line that runs into Aurora instead. This switch in plans will still allow you to explore new sections of our city via the ever-expanding rail network of RTD. As normal, we’ll start with drinks, sumptuous snacks and a slideshow of Denver’s rail history, along with an orientation of RTD’s growing commuter train system. Then we’ll take the new A Line to the Peoria Station where we will transfer to the R Line into Aurora. Along the way we’ll inspect new stations and their public art displays, with a stop at the Anschutz Medical Campus to see a few of the changes taking place there.
