DENVER — A poll commissioned by the Colorado Passenger Rail Association found that Coloradans would rather invest in commuter rail service than commuter bus service if a transportation tax increase were to pass, KRDO reports.

The survey found that 61% of Coloradans favor setting aside $50 million a year to build a passenger rail system along the front range cities of Fort Collins, Denver, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo, while 60% said they favor expanding commuter rail service, with 22% opting for expanded commuter bus service.

If passed, House Bill 17-1242 is projected to generate $700 million for new transportation infrastructure in Colorado. For the full story, click here.
