US Highway 287 Bus Rapid Transit Feasibility Study and Public Meeting

Review the Bus Rapid Transit Stations Area Toolkit and attend a public meeting on Dec. 2


Boulder County is excited to announce the US Highway 287 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Stations Area Toolkit is now available for review at boco.org/287planning.

As part of the US 287 Bus Rapid Transit Feasibility Study, this toolkit is designed to be a menu of aspirational options to help make the areas to and around the transit stops more inviting for people. Tools range from intersection treatments, bicycling and walking needs, station elements, placemaking, and Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED).

This toolkit was made in conjunction with our agency and non-profit partners. Public feedback was incorporated into its development, such as shelter from the elements, and our desire is for the toolkit to complement local planning and design guidance. Comments or questions on the Stations Area Toolkit or the overall 287 planning initiative may be submitted online.

Well-designed stations will help create great places to further comfort levels and encourage transit use, and maximize return on investment in meeting our transportation, air-quality and other regional goals.

During this online meeting (held via Zoom), participants will hear a recap of the feedback we received from the public and how we applied this feedback to the technical aspects of the project. Attendees will learn about the tools we have developed, implementation recommendations, how this project can help improve the environment through enhanced transportation options, and next steps. Members of the public will also have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. The meeting will be available in both English and Spanish language audio, and the video recording will be posted online for later viewing.

We are nearing the end of this phase of study, but there will be more opportunities for involvement as we reach our first milestone. Stay tuned!
