Transit Safety & Security Solutions, Inc. (TSSS) is proud to have been a part of the Train to the Plane's recent Grand Opening Ceremony in Denver. The Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) University of Colorado A Line covers 23 miles of rail that provides easy, affordable and reliable connections between downtown Denver, Denver International Airport (DIA), and the communities along I-70. “The opening of the University of Colorado A Line is a historic time for the Denver metropolitan region,” said Dave Genova, RTD’s General Manager and CEO. “People will be able to safely and reliably connect to the country and the world by taking the train to Denver International Airport.”
TSSS is part of the Denver Transit Partners, LLC (DTP) team, the RTD’s selected concessionaire owned by Fluor Enterprises, Inc., Denver Rail (Eagle) Holdings, Inc., and Aberdeen Infrastructure Investments (No 4) USA LLC, and is leading the system safety and security effort for the $2.2 billion Eagle P3 capital project. TSSS is responsible for ensuring the commuter rail network, which consists of three rail corridors, 36 miles of new track, 16 stations, and 56 vehicles, is certified to be safe and secure for revenue service. “We are very pleased with the vigorous safety certification process that TSSS led,” stated Aaron Epstein, DTP’s Executive Project Director and CEO. “Safety has always been our number one priority, and TSSS was critical in helping to lead the Eagle project to success, safely,” Aaron added.
Following the ceremony, Jean Claude Aurel, Jr., MPA, ASP, CSP, WSO-CSSD, President and CEO exclaimed, “TSSS is proud to have been a member of the DTP team, which has opened a safe and secure commuter rail system for the citizens of Denver.
