DIA shutting down trains nightly for upgrades! If you are getting ready to travel know that there could be some delays. These are for late night travel on Concourses B and C:

 

What to expect:

  • Train closure: Concourses B and C trains will be unavailable from 9:15 PM to 3:00 AM on February 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, and 28.
  • Alternative transport: During closures, passengers can head through Bridge Security and follow signs to board shuttle buses taking them directly to their concourse.
  • Plan ahead: Allow an extra 30 minutes for your travel time to account for potential delays.

 

Why the closures?

These closures are crucial for testing and evaluating the performance of the Automated Guideway Transit System (AGTS) in preparation for:
  • 26 new trains: DIA is welcoming 26 brand new Alstom train cars this year, offering a 30% reduction in power consumption.
  • Future expansion: The testing will provide valuable data for future improvements as passenger volumes increase towards the projected 100 million annually.
