DENVER (CBS4) – On Monday, RTD’s newest commuter rail line, the N line, officially started rolling — connecting Denver’s Union Station, Commerce City, Northglenn and Thornton.
The 1st stop on the new @RideRTD N line is the National Western Center station! It gives residents of Elyria-Swansea and Globeville easy access to downtown & points north. In the future, it'll be a great way to visit us, including the @NationalWestern Stock Show & @CSUSpur! pic.twitter.com/CusnFC9pgR

Service on the N Line is free for the first a week, then on Sept. 28, it will cost $3 for a one-way trip, as part of a ridership promotional offer.
The service is part of RTD’s voter approved FasTracks program to expand public transit in the Denver metro area. It’s forecast to serve up to 9,500 passengers a day, however during this pandemic, ridership was revised to 8,100.
