The F 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, as part 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. It operates Monday through Friday and does not run on weekends.
According to a map in the RTD's service plan for the corridor, the F Line's color is red.
The F Line's northern terminus is at 18th Street in downtown Denver. It shares track with the D Line from 18th Street to I-25 & Broadway, then runs along the Southeast Corridor to Lincoln Avenue in Lone Tree.
The 2004 voter-approved FasTracks initiative will add 2.3 mi (3.70 km) to the Southeast Corridor (E Line and F Line). It will also add three stations at Sky Ridge Medical Center, Lone Tree City Center and RidgeGate Parkway, with a 2,000 space parking lot at RidgeGate.
Regional Transportation District has sent four teams a Request for Proposal on the Southeast Corridor extension expected due in May 2015. The Southeast Rail Line Extension plan is to extend light rail transit service to the new RidgeGate Parkway Interchange. Additional stations at Sky Ridge Medical Center, Lone Tree City Center, and new R Line terminus station at RidgeGate will have an expected opening in 2019.
