Spring 2019 Station Shift !!

What is Spring 2019 Station Shift, You Ask?

 

We’re writing with some exciting news as we pursue our mission to operate a valuable, sustainable bike-sharing system here in Boulder. As Boulder B-cycle turns eight this spring (May 20!), we’re able to look back and see that the system’s use has increased every year since its launch in 2011, and with each year a pattern becomes clearer: the most-used stations are in higher-density parts of Boulder where connections to commerce and transit abound.

We’re always striving to make the system more useful and efficient, and this year we’ll be seeking to launch new stations in promising locations around town. As we’ve done in the past, we’ll be relocating some of the system’s least-used stations to make this happen.  While we understand that this may inconvenience some riders, we're confident that the station relocations will offer more bikes in high-traffic areas.

We plan to begin removing the following stations this spring 2019:

  • Gunbarrel North

  • Table Mesa Park’n’Ride

  • 30th & Diagonal Highway

  • Broadway & Iris

  • North Boulder Recreation Center

Work to remove the first two stations on the list above may start as soon as this month (April), and we’ve also notified anyone who has used these stations in the last year so that they know of these upcoming changes.

As always, feel free to reach out with any questions. This work will all be completed by the end of 2019.

Happy Riding!

Bring some BEAUTY into the world: Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, 12/5

by Kevin Bell | Nov 20, 2017
This time last year, we asked for your help on Colorado Gives Day to expand our B.E.A.S.T. (Boulder Electric Assist Service Trailer) program to improve peak season system balancing. And it was a wild success: Your donations helped fund a new electric bike that moved more than 1,200 B-cycles in just 10 weeks!

We loved the B.E.A.S.T. so much, in fact, that we're looking to build on its success in 2018 by expanding our bike-powered system maintenance operations with a brand new program! For this year's Colorado Gives Day, we're asking for your support in helping us launch B.E.A.U.T.Y.:

The Boulder Electric-Assist Utility Tool (Y Not?)

...We're still working on the acronym. But we're hoping to raise $5,000 to fund the purchase and outfitting of this electric-assist cargo bike that will be dedicated to bike and station maintenance in the field.

Currently, only our gas-powered fleet truck can carry the tools and equipment needed to perform complete maintenance in the field, so having both B.E.A.U.T.Y. and the B.E.A.S.T. in our fleet will allow us to separate out system balancing and maintenance, increasing our bike-powered system operations at key locations and times of day while further reducing our carbon footprint.
