It is important to reopen this train route because highway 15, the route most used to go to and from Las Vegas, is one of the most dangerous highways in the nation. Reopening the train would allow a safe, and inexpensive way for travelers to travel back and forth between Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California. It would increase tourism at a time when tourist dollars are needed for the economy, and it would benefit the environment by having less cars on the road.

      Expansion of US passenger train transport is a critically valuable factor in:

      - reducing our dependence on foreign oil;

      - reducing highway death/injury throughout

      the entire US;

      - reducing US greenhouse gas emissions

      and our very large contribution to human-

      induced global warming & climate change;

      - allow more LA folks to get to Vegas alive

      (Hwy. 15 is most deadly US Hwy.) so they

      can lose big $s and wish they were dead;

      - taking train is indeed a very much more

      relaxing way to travel than to fly!!

      I love taking the train. My family and I have taken it many times. I would definitely ride the train to LA if it ran from Denver to LA. I'd also take it to Vegas if it went through Las Vegas on the way to LA. I am in favor of fewer cars on the roads and the train is a relaxing form of transportation.
