Commuter rail vehicles have level boarding at all doors of the train, travel up to 79 mph, have a total capacity of 170 people (including seating for 91 people) and have two wheelchair spaces per car. These trains also have larger seats, overhead storage, luggage towers and bicycle racks.

The G Line takes its name from the fact that it passes near the site of the discovery of gold in Colorado. This discovery took place in 1850 when Lewis Ralston, on his way to the California gold fields with a party from Georgia, panned for gold in the creek that now bears his name, where it flows into Clear Creek.
