Two New Stops on the B Line

As we prepare for the much anticipated opening of the G Line rail line between Denver and Wheat Ridge later this month, we wanted to share some exciting news about what the opening means for your community.

When service begins on April 26, two new stations on the B Line will open for service. The 41st & Fox Station and Pecos Junction Station will begin serving the B Line in addition to the G Line. These additional stops will provide B Line riders connections to nearby communities, Arvada and Wheat Ridge. Additionally this will provide more frequent options for reaching Union Station. These new stops will add three extra minutes to the ride between Westminster and downtown Denver.

Also, we want to make sure that everyone is aware the trains will be coming through those stations more frequently so it is important that you continue to be our partners in safety and always be aware and cautious on the platform.

Here are a few things you should know:
  • Currently B Line to Westminster, has had two stops, both end-of-line: Union Station and Westminster.
  • The B and G Lines share track passing through the 41st & Fox and Pecos Junction stations, which to this point have been part of the G Line.
  • When the G Line opens on April 26, the B Line will begin stopping at both stations, adding an additional three minutes of travel time to the B Line. Total end-to-end travel time on the B Line will be about 15 minutes.
  • The B Line will continue to operate at 30-minute frequency during morning and afternoon peak hours, and at one-hour frequency at other times during the operating day.
  • Passengers should pay attention to destination signs and which train they are boarding.
  • Prior to April 26, the B Line will stop at the 41st & Fox and Pecos Junction stations but not pick up passengers. Passengers should not try to board or exit the B Line train at the 41st & Fox or Pecos Junction stations until the G Line opens.
Safety Tips:
  • Don't be distracted – Avoid using headphones or cell phones while in close proximity of trains and tracks.
  • Always follow safety signage and obey warning devices such as flashing red lights and gate arms.
  • Stop and wait for crossing gates to fully rise before crossing the tracks.
  • Always look both ways before crossing the track, as trains can travel from either direction at any time.
  • Never trespass on any train track – it's illegal and dangerous.
  • Gate attendants may be present at crossings at any time as a safety precaution, such as when routine maintenance or repairs occur. Be prepared to follow their instructions.
We are marking our 50th anniversary of people who move people this year and this is just one more way we will connect people to the region. Please be sure to follow us on social media and check our website for updates as we move toward the G Line opening date. Thank you for your continued support.
