Moving in the right direction

The City of Longmont is moving forward in developing the master plan for the 1st & Main Station to include a future Regional Transportation District (RTD) commuter rail station at the site of the old flour mill near 1st Avenue and Main Street.

The site initially will only serve as a centralized bus hub. Eventually, it will serve RTD rail and bus customers as the terminus for the FasTracks Northwest Corridor commuter rail line between Longmont and Denver.

Using a $17 million initial payment by RTD, the City is moving ahead with the master plan to spur economic development even before the FasTracks trains start rolling.
