The H Line (sometimes known as the Blue Line), part of the light rail system operated by the Regional Transportation District in the Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Area in Colorado, was added to the system on November 17, 2006, with the completion of the Southeast Corridor project (the "T-Rex Project"). It is one of four routes that are part of the RTD's service plan for the corridor.
According to a map in the RTD's service plan for the corridor, the H Line's color is blue.
The H Line's northern terminus is at 18th and California in downtown Denver. It shares track with the D Line until it reaches I-25 & Broadway Station, then follows the Southeast Corridor to a junction past Southmoor Station, and follows the I-225 branch of the system to Parker Road (at Nine Mile Station) in Aurora.

The 2004 voter-approved FasTracks initiative will extend the H Line approximately 3.5 mi (5.63 km) to the north along Interstate 225 with stops at Iliff Avenue and Florida Avenue. Work began in 2012, and the two station extension was combined with I-225 corridor light-rail line in 2013. Construction should be complete in 2016.
