Boulder – Provided 44,061 paratransit trips for 1,030 riders, and served another 83 individuals through the mobility options program. In addition, Via provided 15,032 trips for individuals experiencing homelessness to access safe shelter or employment/training programs.
Brighton – Served 303 residents in the paratransit and mobility options programs. Via also added a half day of service per week expanding its boundaries in order to serve rural riders in the Brighton area.
Longmont – Provided 37,115 paratransit trips to 985 riders in Longmont, which is a 10-percent increase in trips over 2012 and a 24-percent increase in the number of people served. Client statistics show that Via now serves as nearly as many Longmont residents as Boulder residents, which is a dramatic shift in the demographics of the organization’s target populations.
