Community Cycles worked with the City of Boulder, Regional Transportation District (RTD), Boulder County, to obtain funding for and build a Bus-then-Bike shelter at The Boulder Transit Center that offers 140 secure, free bike parking spots for registered commuters as well as other amenities.
The Bus-then-Bike shelter can accommodate up to 140 bikes through a modern, double-decker rack system, additional bike parking outside the shelter, better lighting, a bicycle repair station and a vending system for basic bike parts.
Boulder County created the Bus-then-Bike program in 2011 to encourage individuals to use bus transit in combination with bike travel to complete trips to work, school or general visits. The program includes free, secure bike shelters at four Boulder County locations and keycard access for registered users.
The four bike shelters are located at:
- 28th and Iris Streets, Boulder (31-bike capacity)
- Roosevelt Park/ 8th & Coffman Park-n-Ride, Longmont (31-bike capacity)
- Table Mesa Park-n-Ride, Boulder (31-bike capacity)
- 14th and Walnut Streets, Boulder Transit Center (140-bike capacity).
