Bus to Work Day

Bus to Work Day banner image

Join us for Boulder’s inaugural Bus to Work day on Wednesday, Oct. 5! Riding the bus is a great way to unwind before and after work, so why not let us take you where you need to go? 


With the theme of "Ride, Relax, Repeat," the event will focus on riding the bus as a great way to commute and unwind before and after work. Frequent riders are able to gain time, relax and give their cars a break. Throughout the day, events will take place at various bus stops and stations including prizes, refreshments, free bus rides on select routes and more!

Bus to Work Day supports Boulder’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP) goals to encourage trips by transit, as well as broader community sustainability and climate goals.
