  • Rider alert: Two station relocations coming next week

    by Kevin Bell | Jul 25,2016
    We've got some exciting news! Two of our least-used stations are being relocated next week to higher-traffic areas in an effort to improve our service network.

    Here's what's up:

    33rd & Fisher moving to 30th & Diagonal
    Tuesday, 8/2

    33rd & Fisher moving to 30th & Diagonal


    This Boulder County-supported station is moving from the Clerk & Recorder's Building at 33rd & Fisher to the southeast corner of 30th & Diagonal Highway, next to the Bus-Then-Bike shelter. This relocation will provide service to riders de-boarding buses coming into Boulder off of the Diagonal Highway.  

    Thanks again to Boulder County for their ongoing support of our program! 

    Closest station to old site: 38th & Arapahoe


     

    Wilderness Place moving to 9th & Pearl
    Wednesday, 8/3

     

    Wilderness Place moving to 9th & Pearl

     

    This relocation, funded by our 2015 Colorado Gives Day campaign, will move the Wilderness Place station to the southwest corner of 9th & Pearl. This station will serve to mitigate parking and transportation issues surrounding the new development taking place on the West End of Pearl Street.
     
    Thanks again to all of our generous Colorado Gives Day donors!
