In 2013, the new W Rail line opened, giving Jeffco residents more access to the Denver Metro area than ever before. The W Line provides 12.1 miles of new light rail between Denver, Lakewood, and Golden. The line connects Denver's Union Station and the Jefferson County Government Center-Golden Station. Amenities include 11 new stations and 6 Park-n-Rides along the route. Additionally, the Belmar shopping district in Lakewood launched a free shuttle service connecting Belmar and the Lakewood-Wadsworth station giving residents and visitors more access to shops, restaurants, and entertainment options.
The Gold Line is an 11.2-mile electric commuter rail transit line that will connect Denver Union Station to Wheat Ridge, passing through northwest Denver, Adams County and Arvada. There are eight stations: Denver Union Station, 41st/Fox, Pecos, Federal, Sheridan, Olde Town Arvada, Arvada Ridge and Ward Road. Final design is underway and early construction has begun. It is scheduled to open to the public in 2016.
Local bus service is provided by the Regional Transportation District (RTD). There are also seven inter-city commercial bus companies in the Denver metro area.
