Denver International Airport is joining the club of western airports with rail access. Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Oakland, Phoenix all have them, LA is building one (albeit with a hilariously New York schedule), and San Diego, well, I guess they're gonna just sit this crazy trend out.
It's a 23 mile trip that takes 37 minutes and costs $9. The $9 basically gets you an unlimited day pass for Denver's RTD transit system. This seems like a unique approach to a problem that often happens with these kinds of links: "how to we charge tourists a lot more money than airport workers for the same ride?"

The trains are Silverliner V EMU by Hyundai-Rotem. Each car holds 232 passengers, 91 of them seated, with two wheelchair spaces. The trains run 22 hours a day, every half hour off-peak, and every 15 minutes during peak hours (5am - 6:30pm).
