It Tolls For Thee…

Should Pena Blvd have tolls to pay for transit expansion?

  1. but only if it went directly towards funding public transportation projects. It would make a lot of sense to toll PeГ±a in order to get the money to build some sort of rail to the airport.

    Tolls are pretty regressive, but tolls that are only in place to repave or build more highways–now that’s really regressive.

    1. …at least that what our one daily newspaper reports:

      The Regional Transportation District has said it must complete the airport train and the Gold Line by the original FasTracks completion date of 2017 or risk losing an expected $1 billion from the federal government.

      Officials say tolls on PeГ±a Boulevard could be used to help offset some of the cost of the $1.7 billion DIA line, making more money available for other FasTracks lines. About 100,000 vehicles travel in and out of DIA on PeГ±a per day, the airport says.

      1. I come from the great toll state of IL. Once the toll is built they will never take it down.

        It will cost more money to visit or do business at the airport, I see no upside to this.  

        1. declaring that once the construction was completed the money for operations would have to come from RTD. That would probably result in some sort of fee increase elsewhere, but it would eliminate the tolls once they expired.

          Since our representatives here are term limited, unlike Illinois, that might make it less likely that the tolls would be re-instated after the sunset too.

          1. But CA is another example.  “Temporary” bridge toll increases starting 15 years ago or so and now they’re probably going to go up to $5 next year.  Even term limited state legislators don’t usually like to give back revenue streams…
