Your input is needed! The US Highway 287 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Feasibility Study is now available for public review and comments through Sept. 16 at www.boco.org/287planning

Key Points:

The Boulder County Planning & Permitting plan focuses on recommendations for transit-related service enhancements and capital investments along US 287 from Longmont to US 36 in Broomfield to provide additional options for people to get where they want to go.

The community is invited to review and comment on the plan, share what is important moving forward, and provide additional suggestions for the US 287 project team.

Over the past 18 months, the US 287 project team has worked with local communities and agency partners, including Commuting Solutions, to identify opportunities to improve transit services along the US 287 corridor. The corridor connects Boulder County, City & County of Broomfield with communities in Larimer County, as well as connections to Downtown Denver. 

The US 287 BRT Feasibility Study is considered the first-phase study with a second phase, Vision Zero Safety, and Multimodal Mobility, anticipated to start this Fall.
