GO Boulder: Options Provide a Holistic Approach to Transportation in Boulder

This article focuses on the City of Boulder (Colorado) Transportation Department and its GO Boulder Program. With the underlying goal of weaning residents from single occupancy vehicles, the GO Boulder Program focuses on all modes of transportation. The article explains how Boulder has done things differently, how it’s ahead of the curve in terms of integrating biking and walking into its transportation system, and the challenges it faces in terms of higher fuel costs and higher transit ridership. The article describes the city’s Go Bike Boulder—a sort of “Mapquest” for bikers and Hop, a high-frequency circulator partnered by the city and the Denver Regional Transportation District. New programs include Skip, Jump, Bound, Leap and the Dash—all high-frequency services running every 10 minutes during peak hours.
