We’re good at putting plans, and wheels, in motion.
Just two decades ago, Metro Denver had outgrown its airport, our major highways were becoming crowded, and light rail was distant dream.
But today, Metro Denver boasts the 11th-busiest airport in the world—an iconic, efficient facility with 16 commercial carriers providing nonstop service to more than 170 domestic and international destinations.
We’ve also made major improvements to our highway system, with the development of beltways and toll roads, and the completion of one of the country’s largest multimodal transit projects.
And, Metro Denver is in the process of building out its entire mass transit system, adding miles of rapid transit and expanding its existing bus network. Plans are also in the works to enhance and expand existing freight and passenger rail service.
From the pioneers who made their way here in canoes and covered wagons to today’s commuters who bike to work, the people of this region have always had a “can do” attitude when it comes to transportation.
