What happens to the A-Line Shuttle after the Gold Line starts operating this Fall?
By now many of our riders have heard the news that the A-Line Shuttle will cease operation once the Gold Line train (RTD's G Line) is up and running. This is an exciting time -- the train we've all looked forward to is almost here -- but it also means that our funding is about to end.
RTD has very generously funded the A-Line shuttle service for more than a dozen years. Even so, we have always understood that the agency's subsidy could continue no later than when there is train service to Arvada and Wheat Ridge.
The start date of the G Line has not been announced, but it likely will be later in the fall. (Certainly not earlier than October. We'll let you know as soon as we know.) Until then we'll be operating on our normal schedule out of the Olde Town Arvada park-n-Ride.
Please watch for updates about the transition in the months to come, and, especially important, details about alternatives for you -- including the great one of the train itself.
