DIA Train Running Again After Power Outage

May 25, 2016

The new train line between Denver and the city's airport is running again after a power outage stranded about 80 passengers on an overpass.

The Regional Transportation District, which operates the line, says the power went out and stopped a train on a 50-foot overpass near the airport's cellphone lot Tuesday afternoon. Passengers walked down the overpass to a nearby bus that took them to the airport.

The airport train has experienced a handful of outages as well as problems with crossing gates since the 23-mile, $1.2 billion line opened April 22.
