(Denver, CO) This weekend, RTD will conduct testing that will affect the A, B, G and N commuter lines traveling to and from Union Station.

To minimize future RTD line disruptions, the agency collaborated with local partners to do testing the same weekend as maintenance on the Park Avenue Bridge, which travels over or is adjacent to the A, B, G and N lines.

Beginning Saturday, June 11, and extending through the end of service on Sunday, the commuter line service will be interrupted.

Expanded shuttle service will connect passengers between the impacted stations. On Monday, all regular service should resume, according to RTD.

Passengers on those lines this weekend are encouraged to plan alternate routes and can use RTD’s Next Ride web app to plan trips and see bus and train locations in real time.
