Transportation Resources for Reaching Vaccines

Vaccine Clinic

The Boulder County Mobility and Access Coalition (MAC), formerly Local Coordinating Council, is responsible for ensuring that all county residents, including the most vulnerable, have access to reliable and affordable transportation options. Transportation is one of the largest obstacles in vaccinating vulnerable populations; therefore, the transportation options linked below, aim to serve Boulder County residents regardless of financial status and/or access to private transportation. Boulder County’s multiple transportation options have made changes to their services to make vaccine trips a top priority.

Boulder County Mobility for All continues to regularly convene MAC working group meetings to collaboratively address the intersection of transportation and vaccine access. A Vaccine Transportation Partner Toolkit and social media graphics can be found HERE.

If you have questions or ideas about the coordination of vaccine transportation, contact Mobility for All Staff at mobilityforall@bouldercounty.org.

Boulder County Electric Vehicle Case Study

Blue LA

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are key component in Boulder Counties sustainability goals. To ensure that equity is at the forefront of the EV discussion Mobility for All partnered with Nelson/Nygaard to research and compile EV Case Studies.

The case study research project built on previous projects NelsonNygaard conducted nationwide, so Boulder County benefited from the most recent information in the electric vehicle field. Through the course of the research project, Nelson/Nygaard developed approximately nine case studies.
