North Boulder Mobility Hub
North Boulder Mobility Hub
at the intersection of North Broadway and US 36
The City of Boulder, RTD, Boulder County and CDOT are partnering to develop the North Boulder mobility hub - envisioned as a high quality multimodal transit center and a new gateway into the city. The draft concept plan provides a combined set of transportation services on one site; including a transit station and bus turnaround, Boulder B-cycle, a Bike-n-Ride shelter, car share services and placemaking elements, such as architectural and sculptural gateway features.
The goal of the mobility hub is to provide seamless mobility by fully integrating the city’s expanding transit network with all modes of transportation. The site will truly be transformed into a multimodal transportation hub to better serve the North Boulder area, which includes linking to many local and regional transit routes and creating a landmark gateway into the city.
*This property is currently owned by the Colorado Department of Transportation and development of the mobility hub would require a negotiated purchase or use agreement.

What is a Mobility Hub?
The goal of a Mobility Hub is to provide seamless mobility with a full integration of the transit network with pedestrian and bicycle facilities, car/sharing, and context-appropriate parking supply. Mobility Hubs emphasize excellent pedestrian infrastructure within a quarter to half-mile walkshed and connections to the bicycle network. Mobility Hubs are context-sensitive solutions that are adaptable to a variety of locations. Each location requires a unique design, but most include the features identified in the bullets and graphic shown here:
