Coordinated Human Service Plan

openhouse

Boulder County is creating its very first Coordinated Public Transit - Human Services Transportation Plan – Mobility and Access for All Ages and Abilities Plan - and we want to hear from you! The plan focuses on the transportation needs of seniors, people with disabilities, low-income individuals, and youth. The plan will also address federal requirements per the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) Section 5310 funding process for urbanized and rural areas.

What: Presentation on the conceptual design for the 119 Bikeway and an overview on how it will connect to other projects along the corridor.

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics

Vaccine Clinic

Boulder County is continuing to hold vaccination clinics throughout the County to administer the COvid-19 Vaccines. To stay up to date on where vaccines are available the county maintains lists of both long-term vaccination clinics and special vaccination clinics. A list of clinics can be found here to help you find the site that works best for you.

Boulder County’s multiple transportation options have made changes to their services to make vaccine trips a top priority.


Get Involved

ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan

After receiving dozens of community comments on accessibility challenges present in the city's transportation infrastructure (sidewalks, curb ramps, multi-use paths, pedestrian crossings and access to transit stops), staff has created a draft ADA Self-Evaluation Plan.

The plan provides background on applicable ADA-related policies/programs, an overview of key themes from community engagement and major gaps and challenges, with an initial dive into strategies to address these. This effort helps frame future accessibility upgrades to be prioritized in the forthcoming ADA Transition Plan (to be developed later in 2021).
