Spring Station Shift !!

What is Spring 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:

  • 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.

Happy Riding!

Two New Stations: Timber Ridge @ Adams Circle & SEEC @ Discovery Drive!

by Kevin Bell | Aug 28, 2018
While 45 stations was a nice, round number, we just couldn't help ourselves: Two new stations are up and running for you to use, bringing our total to 47! Check it out:

Timber Ridge @ Adams Circle

Timber Ridge

The installation of this station was sponsored by Timber Ridge, who are also providing discounted bike sharing passes to their residents! The station is located on Adams Circle west of 30th street, between Colorado Avenue and Aurora Avenue. This station has been in the ground for a little while now, so you may have already made use of it—we just had to clear a bit of red tape before announcing it!

SEEC @ Discovery Drive

SEEC

The SEEC @ Discovery Drive station is sponsored by the University of Colorado's Sustainability, Energy and Environment Community in support of their vision. SEEC is also providing heavily discounted annual passes for their faculty & staff! The station is located on Discovery drive, just north of Colorado Avenue and west of Foothills Parkway.

Standard note: if we haven't yet installed a station where you'd like to see one, it comes down to a combination of three factors: funding, permission, and density. These locations were installed because we had all three!
