Transportation Master Plan Update: 2018-19


The 2014 Transportation Master Plan (TMP) provides the policy guidance for the city’s annual work program and investment priorities in support of the Boulder community’s multimodal transportation and sustainability goals. In 2018, the Transportation Division will initiate the next scheduled update of Boulder’s TMP, including technical analysis in each of the TMP Focus Areas: Complete Streets, Regional Travel, Transportation Demand Management, Funding and Integrated Sustainability Initiatives. 

Highlighted topics for the 2018-19 TMP update will be based on City Council and Transportation Advisory Board direction, the findings from the 2018 editions of the city’s Transportation Report on Progress, Safe Streets Boulder Report, and emerging policy areas such as new transportation technologies (electric vehicles, connected/autonomous vehicles) and Mobility as a Service/Mobility on Demand.  

Status and Next Steps

As part of the assessment and scoping phase for the 2018-19 TMP Update, city staff is preparing the 2018 Transportation Report on Progress, which is scheduled for release in January 2018. The TMP update is anticipated to begin in the second quarter of 2018 and continue for approximately 18 months, culminating in a final report in the third quarter of 2019. The TMP update process will include an extensive community engagement program in accordance with the recommendations from the 2017 Public Participation Working Group Report.
