YES! It is true what you may (or may not) have heard: Boulder Bike Sharing will be dropping 100 pedal-assist ebikes into our system starting this Friday, February 26th! We beat our own launch date by a week!

Through a partnership with BCycle/Trek Bikes. These ebikes will allow riders to get up hills with ease and go farther faster, with a goal of replacing car trips and facilitating multimodal lifestyles while enabling the decade-old Boulder Bike Sharing nonprofit to experiment with a new business model. The Electric bikes will be available to all Boulder B-cycle system riders, including participants of Boulder Bike Sharing’s existing and planned equity initiatives, as the organization seeks to do its part to advance social and climate justice. Download the BCycle app or head to www.boulderbcycle.org for more information on the system’s passes, which range from pay-per-trip to monthly and annual options.


Trek’s BCycle Electric bikes feature a best-in-class BOSCH motor, Shimano brakes for safe and reliable performance in all seasons and front & rear integrated lighting for safe and visible riding. They are Class 1 ebikes with smooth pedal assist, making electrified riding feel instantly familiar to all bike riders.


Since May of 2011, Boulder Bike Sharing has been providing Boulder with reliable bike-sharing service, and the Boulder B-cycle system now counts 300 shared bikes across key areas and destinations in Boulder. Boulder was an early adopter of bike sharing, and the Boulder B-cycle system still ranks among the largest and densest for cities of a similar population. The Boulder B-cycle system has provided over 100,000 shared bike trips every year since 2017, and in 2020 set a new annual record for system use as CU students flocked to the service during the fall semester. Boulder Bike Sharing’s 2020 strategic plan calls for the electrification of the system and the exploration of partnerships and regional opportunities, and in partnership with Trek riders of the Boulder B-cycle system are almost certain to establish new ridership records in 2021.


 

Station relocation alert: 27th Way & Broadway moving to Table Mesa Park N Ride next week

by Sara Michaels | May 10, 2017
Hey, riders: Here's a quick heads up to keep you in the loop: Next Wednesday, 5/17, we'll be relocating the 27th Way & Broadway Station to the north side of Table Mesa Park N Ride!

Table Mesa Relocation-01

But Why?

When we installed this station in 2014, funded in part by RTD, it was intended to serve regional bus routes coming to and from Denver—At the time, the B, BX, and BMX routes.

When RTD discontinued the B routes and introduced the Flatiron Flyer, those buses no longer stopped at 27th Way & Broadway. As a result, use of this station dropped dramatically, and it has become one of the least-used stations in the system, seeing only a handful of trips per day.

We're relocating the station to Table Mesa Park N Ride so that it can resume its original function serving regional bus routes.

While we understand that this may inconvenience the handful of riders who have continued to use the 27th Way & Broadway station, we're confident that the station will do much more to ease commuting stresses in its new location.

As always, feel free to reach out with any questions.

Happy riding!
-The Boulder B-cycle Team
