Skepticism & Excitement Surround G Line News


TRUE AS THIS MODEL MAKES HISTORY ON THE CAT WALK. WE START WITH NEWS IN ARVADA WHERE NEWS BUSINESSES HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR FOR YEARS. RTD FINALLY HAS AN OPENING DAY FOR THE G LINE WHICH WILL TAKE RIDERS FROM UNION STATION TO OLDE TOWN ARVADA NO WHEAT RIDGE. IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING LATER THIS MONTH. JAMIE SPENT THE DAY IN OLDTOWN. PEOPLE YOU TALKED TO SAY THEY CANNOT BELIEVE THE NEWS. Reporter: THIS IS NOT AN APRIL FOOL’S JOKE, BUT SO MANY ARE STILL SKEPTICAL BECAUSE THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY DELAYS. OCTOBER 2016 WAS THE ORIGINAL DATE THAT THIS G LINE WAS SUPPOSED TO START UP. THIS TRAIN IS GOING TO RUN FROM HERE AT UNION STATION 11.2 MILES WITH SIX SYMPTOMS ALL THE WAY TO WHEAT RIDGE.
