Serving the mountain communities of western Boulder County, The Climb is a member of Via’s family of transportation programs. It operates regularly scheduled bus service in select mountain communities of western Boulder County and provides sustainable subsidized transportation services.

The Climb interconnects the residents of the mountain communities to each other and the urban corridor served by public transit including the city of Boulder and metro-Denver. The Climb intends to lower the cost and environmental impact of commuting in areas not fully served by public transit by providing reliable and safe transportation.

Service is available Monday – Friday, excluding holidays.
