The Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) yesterday began collecting fares on the G Line after offering free rides on the electric commuter-rail line since it opened April 26. 

RTD offered free rides in appreciation of the public’s patience in the delayed opening of the 11-mile, eight-station line that connects passengers from Denver’s western-most station to Union Station downtown, RTD officials said in a press release. 

Originally scheduled to open in October 2016, the line experienced several crossing gate issues that delayed the opening until 2019.
