Arvada residents will find getting to work around the Denver metro area a bit easier in 2016, thanks to the Gold Line commuter rail. According to a recent article from the Denver Post, if city officials have their way, the journey will be made even simpler still with a shuttle system that will transport residents to and from the rail line stop in Olde Town Arvada Colorado.
The Gold Line will connect Union Station in downtown Denver to Wheat Ridge and will feature seven different stations, including the one in Arvada. Service frequency will be every fifteen minutes from 6 am to 6:30 pm, with thirty minute frequency in the early morning and night.
The city of Arvada is working with a citizen run transportation committee and the Regional Transportation District to design a circular shuttle system that would run throughout the city, the article stated. Potential shuttle stops would include Red Rocks Community College, Stenger Sports Complex, the Triangle District, the senior center, and the Arvada Center. City transportation engineer John Firouzi stated that the intention is to streamline services in order to provide citizens with more access to transportation than they currently have.
Public transportation options take the downside of dealing with traffic from the commuting equation and make the notion of suburban living possible for more people.
