We care about transportation options that offer something for everyone – like bikes, buses, and shared vehicles. These services include offerings from Boulder BCycle, Colorado CarShare, and Via Mobility Services.
Boulder’s mobility partners envision a community where transportation options are healthy, cost-effective, accessible, and worry-free for all. We are leaders who promote clean transportation and prioritize social equity for all Boulder residents and visitors.
As local service providers, riders, advocates, and decision-makers, we partner to improve Boulder’s transportation while empowering people to navigate car-free and car-light lifestyles.
Meet Sarah, a Boulder resident who uses a combination of BCycle, Colorado CarShare, and Via Mobility Services to get around town.
Sarah loves the convenience of using BCycle’s bike-sharing service to explore Boulder with friends. She finds it easy to rent a bike from one of many stations around the city and feels a sense of freedom pedaling around. She also appreciates reducing her carbon footprint while getting exercise.
When she needs to go a bit farther, Sarah turns to Colorado CarShare. She loves how easy it is to reserve a car through the app and pick it up from a nearby location. Plus, she says it’s always a fun adventure to try out different types of cars, from electric vehicles to hybrid SUVs. For Sarah, renting a car on-demand is affordable and flexible without the expense and hassle of owning a vehicle.
One time, Sarah needed knee surgery. She faced temporary challenges getting around while recovering from the procedure. She turned to Via Mobility Services for accessible transportation. She loves that Via’s drivers are friendly and professional and help her get in and out of the vehicle. After she stopped driving a personal car, Sarah helped her grandmother sign up to ride with Via.
Sarah says having reliable transportation options to accommodate her needs is comforting. She loves that she’s doing her part to reduce traffic and carbon emissions while caring for her health.
Bike sharing provides an eco-friendly, convenient, and cost-effective way to connect to public transportation, get to class, run errands around town, de-stress and navigate Boulder without worrying about parking, locks, or bike maintenance. Our pedal-assist e-bikes will get you there efficiently and with a dash of fun!
“Why does my heart skip a beat when I spy an iconic Boulder BCycle kiosk? Is it the beauty of the array? Is it the black-and-white siren call of electric steeds promising to cater to your everyday transportation impulses? Or is it the tangible proof of embodied optimism that a reliable, user-friendly, affordable, and environmentally simpatico transportation system is in the low-carbon Boulder here and now? All of the above!”

“I am a big bike rider and public transit user. I don’t own a car, but as a CarShare Member, I have virtually immediate access to dozens of CarShare vehicles in Boulder and Denver. It is an incredibly affordable and convenient service.”
