Passenger Rail


The Passenger Rail Commission (aka, the Southwest Chief & Front Range Passenger Rail Commission) coordinates and oversees efforts by state and local governments—and cooperates with Kansas, New Mexico, Amtrak and the BNSF Railway (BNSF)—to ensure completion of track repairs and upgrades required to continue Southwest Chief Rail service in Colorado. The Commission also works to extend service to Pueblo, and is fully exploring the benefits of service extension to Walsenburg.

Additionally, the Commission facilitates the development of a Front Range Passenger Rail system, as well as legislation for rail service in and along the I-25 corridor that is a well-integrated component of a modern, efficient and cost-effective multimodal transportation system.
