AURORA, Colo. -- RTD's new light rail line connecting Lone Tree to Aurora will begin operations Friday.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the R Line is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. at the Black Hawk and Iliff Station. All rides Friday will be free.
The R Line will run from the Peoria Station in Aurora all the way to the Lincoln Station in Line Tree. Riders will be able to board at eight brand new stations across Aurora and travel all the way to Lone Tree to the south, DIA to the east, or downtown Denver and beyond to the east.
The R Line was supposed to open in December but was pushed back to a February opening date.
