The Train to the Plane: Why I Love the A Line Warts and All

Spread the love

Every day Kyle Clark asks the following question about the A Train…is it working? And, it each day it feels like a crap shoot. But, I remember the whole debacle with the opening of Denver International Airport. They used to call it Dead in the Air because it took forever to open and it kept experiencing delays.

People love DIA now.

I’ve taken the A Line several times to the airport and I absolutely love how it connects the city of Denver to the airport. It’s the beginning of a rebranding of the city of Denver with the rest of the country, and yes, the world as a world-class city.

The Issues

There is a problem with the timers for the gates. This is a huge issue and it does baffle me that the light rail system runs so well in terms of being on time but that the A Line is still experiencing these issues.

If history is any indication the public will forget the initial problems that the train has had in the long run: unless they were part of that group of people who had to walk on the tracks last year.

What do you think about the A Line? What has your experience been?
