People Movers

The new commuter bus service between Colorado Springs and Denver is wildly popular. And now, some people want more.

The Front Range Express bus service, launched in October, carries an average 300 people on weekdays.

But now, some commuters wonder why passenger trains can't connect the state's 2 largest cities.

They believe a rail system would be better than the bus service because it would avoid traffic jams and accidents.

But according to 1994 estimates, the expenses would be high. Track upgrades would cost about $8 million per mile.
