Who We Are

For almost 20 years, Commuting Solutions’ mission has been to enhance the mobility of commuters in the northwest metro region for today and the future. From technology developments to a recent boom in Colorado’s population, much has changed since 1998, but we remain true to our mission of bringing innovative travel solutions to the northwest metro region.

As the Transportation Management Organization (TMO) for the US 36 corridor, our role is to improve the economic vitality of the region, maximize the use of our existing infrastructure and work alongside local governments to improve infrastructure and region-wide connectivity.

Accomplishments

 Helped secure $497 million to construct the US 36 Express Lanes Project, leading to the construction of bi-directional Express Lanes, Flatiron Flyer Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and the 18-mile US 36 Bikeway. (The project was awarded the 2016 Project of the Year by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association.)
 Initiated the first segment of the B Line (formerly Northwest Rail).
 Developed a two-year social marketing campaign that inspired 2,637 solo drivers to switch to carpooling, vanpooling or public transit, resulting in an estimated 500 fewer vehicles traveling the corridor each day.
 Currently implementing top recommendations from the US 36 First and Final Mile Study, including: expanding wayfinding signage along the US 36 Bikeway and around US 36 RTD stations and constructing Bike-n-Ride bus shelters at nine US 36 RTD stations.
