DENVER-- The Regional Transportation District (RTD) and commuter rail concessionaire Denver Transit Partners (DTP) will host a series of events over the next few weeks to provide information about quiet zones along the University of Colorado A Line and G Line.

Quiet zones are areas along a railroad segment where train operators don’t have to sound their train horns at crossings on a routine basis. However, even with quiet zones in effect, train operators maintain discretion to use horns under circumstances that require additional safety precautions and per federal regulations. This means that train horns will still sound within designated quiet zones for a variety of reasons.

Residents are invited to visit with representatives of RTD and DTP, ask questions and learn when and why they might hear train horns in designated quiet zones along commuter rail routes.
