Boulder Junction

Boulder Junction (previously known as the Transit Village) is a 160-acre redevelopment area located in the geographic center of the community, connecting west and east Boulder. It is becoming a state of the art transit-oriented development that features a bus rapid transit (BRT) station, residential, commercial, and retail space. The centerpiece of this area will be RTD's underground transit facility opening this summer and located adjacent to the new Hyatt Place Hotel. Robust transit service is critical to supporting a transit-centered lifestyle in the Boulder Junction area. RTD will soon be making some important decisions regarding US 36 BRT service to Boulder Junction.


This video shares with you the place that Boulder Junction is becoming and the importance of providing robust BRT service to leverage the significant public (city and RTD) and private investment to support a true transit-centered lifestyle at Boulder Junction.


Here's what you can do:

  • Watch and share this 3-minute video with colleagues and friends.
  • Review and provide comments on RTD's proposed U.S. 36 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service plan by May 1, 2015. Please note the City of Boulder is preparing a letter to RTD that will be available to the public on April 30, 2015.
  • Attend RTD's Board meeting on the proposed U.S. 36 BRT service plan scheduled for June 16, 2015.

The City of Boulder is also offering tours of the Boulder Junction district to community members. If you have questions or would like to participate in a tour, please contact Jean Sanson at

The Regional Transportation District (RTD) owns and operates Boulder's Community Transit Network, a fleet of buses that transport passengers throughout Boulder and connects with regional bus routes. GO Boulder collaborates with RTD to fund and plan the local buses.

Later in April 2015, the City of Boulder and US 36 Mayors and Commissioners Coalition will be providing RTD with separate comments.
