Colorado Public Radio has announced a new four-part miniseries focused on Colorado’s attempts to build a greener transportation system in the state. “Ghost Train” is hosted by CPR News transportation reporter Nathaniel Minor and launches Feb. 8th TRAILER
“I started covering transportation in Colorado full-time three years ago, just as the applause for the Denver area’s new train lines was fading,” Minor said. “And in reporting this series, I’ve learned that these trains were meant to be more than people-movers. They were supposed to symbolize progress and status. I wanted to know whether they are effective.”
In “Ghost Train,” Minor explores the past, present and future of transit projects in the Denver metro area, starting from the 2004 vote to back an ambitious transit plan that would help commuters glide by traffic and transform Denver into a world-class city.
