Denver Edition:

DENVER – The regional transit system is moving 34 light rail cars to the popular southeast light rail line.

RTD says Monday through Friday, an average of 61,000 people combined ride the central, southwest and southeast light rail lines. RTD says of that, an average of 34,000 are riding the southeast light rail line.

The southeast line connects north Denver to Park Meadows in the south and Aurora in the east.

“It is very popular because of the fact you have all those people coming in from the outskirts coming in to use the light rail,” RTD Spokesperson Daria Serna said.

Of course, Seattle is totally unlike Denver. Denver is a Western city surrounded by mountains. It can’t work here. Let’s just build lots of roads!
