Denver Eagle

Denver RTD’s Eagle Project is the first transit DBFOM (design, build, finance, operate, and maintain) Public-Private Partnership in the United States. RTD, which participated in a Public-Private Partnership Pilot Program established in the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Act (SAFETEA-LU) legislation, selected Denver Transit Partners to deliver the commuter rail project, which began service in 2016.
