CDOT looking to build a commuter rail from Pueblo to Fort Collins with a potential $15 billion price tag

Today’s featured guest is Randal O’Toole. Randal is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and director of the Transportation Policy Center at the Independence Institute, a free-market think tank in Denver. He’s also a featured author for Complete Colorado.

CDOT, Colorado’s Department of Transportation, has earmarked $2.5 million to do a study about spending anywhere from $5 billion to $15 billion to build a high-speed train to travel from Pueblo to Fort Collins.
