Future of FREX Uncertain

Of course. There is finaly a solution to some of the connectivity issues between Colorado Springs and Denver and now it is possibly going to be terminated? It figures.

I think they just can't get enough people to give up the convenience of their own vehicles, even at $3/gallon. You can still get to Denver from the Springs in an hour taking I25.
The same concept might work between two cities the size of Denver.
Try again in 30 years.

FREX Gets Funding Boost
Denver, CO--On August 16, 2006, the Strategic Transit Task Force, an ad-hoc group of the Colorado Transportation Commission, recommended approval of an $8 million proposal to expand and solidify the ongoing operation of the Front Range Express (FREX). The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) would pay $6.32 million for the FREX service with the balance of $1.68 million coming from the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority (PPRTA). The money will go towards the purchase of 16 new buses that will provide commuter service along the I-25 corridor, between Fountain, Colorado Springs, Monument, Castle Rock and the Denver Metro area. Since FREX is currently a pilot project scheduled to end in December, the City of Colorado Springs, Transit Services Division (TSD) and the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG) have been strong advocates for state funding and jointly submitted the proposal to the Task Force. The Transportation Commission established the Task Force to allocate ten percent of Senate Bill 97-001 funds towards transit projects that serve a "strategic corridor" such as I-25. Official approval of the funding is expected to be made by the Transportation Commission next month.
