Union Station is the terminus of the C, E and H light rail lines. At the west end of downtown is Union Station, which is on par for a major redesign as it becomes the hub for the Fastracks plan, which will expand rail services to the west and north surburbs, as well as the airport and Boulder, (which the “A” and “B” line designation is reserved for).
Currently the station for the C, E, and H lines is on the far side of the Amtrak boarding area on the east side, with a pedestrian tunnel through Union Station to the Lower Downtown (LoDo) neighborhood. To the west side of the station is Platte Park, an area that is being rapidly developed with new high rise condos surrounding Platte Park.
Also served is the major sports complexes: Mile High Stadium, the Pepsi Center, and Coors Field. A bridge is currently being built over interstate 25 to the Highlands neigbhorhood, which will allow access to downtown and the station via a short walk.
