Feature of the Month: RTD Commuter Rail Vehicles

-Heavier and travel faster than light rail vehicles, but operate in a similar way, using overhead electric lines

-Will travel up to 79 miles per hour, go longer distances and make fewer stops than a typical light rail system

-Passengers will be able to walk directly from the station platform onto the vehicles without climbing stairs, as each door offers level boarding
