Founded in 2009, The Climb empowers rural residents and communities by addressing their transportation needs through collaboration and shared transportation resources. Economic opportunity, access to services, and environmental protection of the mountain areas are core values of The Climb service.
The Climb became a member of the Via family in 2012. Drivers are Via employees and are hired, trained, and supervised by Via staff. However, The Climb maintains its own unique identity that reflects the mountain communities it serves.
The Climb is funded by Boulder County, a Federal Transit Administration grant secured by Via, contract services, and donations.
