What Are the Key Features of the 1996 TMP?

  • Established transportation plans and programs within the context of the broader community goals to protect the natural environment while enhancing Boulder's quality of life and economic vitality;
  • Recognized the reality that Boulder is a community surrounded by open space, largely developed in terms of physical extent and that Boulder values its historic and natural resources;
  • Acknowledged that Boulder is unlikely to significantly expand road capacity and established the ground-breaking goal of shifting 19 percent of peak hour trips out of single persons driving a car to other forms of personal travel;
  • Established the principle objectives of:
    • No long-term growth in vehicle traffic;
    • Reduction in travel by a Single Occupant Vehicle (SOV) to 25 percent of all trips;
    • Continuous reduction in automobile emissions of air pollutants;
    • No more than 20 percent of roadways congested (LOS F); and
  • Added complete bicycle and bus system plans to the other modal plans.
