After nearly a decade, Denver Regional Transportation District’s University of Denver and Colorado light rail stations need to become more visible gateways to surrounding communities, rather than the "back doors" they now represent to their neighborhoods, according to a study of the two stations and their mobility possibilities. “It is time these stations transition from commuter stations to integrated mobility hubs and active local destinations,” reads an online City and County of Denver study description.

Any legislation that addresses the state's transportation needs should take the entire state of Colorado into account and is "a long time coming," freshman state Sen. Rachel Zenzinger, D-Arvada, said in an interview with the Transit Alliance. The Denver-based group is a public-advocacy organization that started in 1997 and works to help citizens to "lead the transformation of Colorado’s mobility future." Zenzinger is a 2008 graduate of the group's Citizen's Academy and spoke to Transit Alliance Program Manager Jamie Perkins in her office shortly before the start of the legislative session.
