The Process

The AGS Feasibility Study followed the Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) Process for engaging stakeholders in the I-70 Mountain Corridor with a strong focus on engaging industry representatives. The process provided a structure for collaborative decision-making and an opportunity to involve Corridor stakeholders in the decisions that affect the Corridor.

The AGS study team worked closely with the technology and financing industries to identify potential high-speed transit systems capable of operating along, or in close proximity to, the I-70 Mountain Corridor by 2025.
