Changes to 15th St. in Downtown Denver

As part of the region's Vision Zero initiative, which strives for a total reduction in traffic-related fatalities, Denver Public Works has rolled out big changes to 15th St. in downtown Denver! In addition to building safer, easily-visible crosswalks to improve pedestrian safety, the city has also installed protected bike lanes and a dedicated transit-only lane, speeding up commute times for bus riders.

Go-Tober is Going Away!

During the entire month of October, your Way to Go team is encouraging companies in the region to participate in smart commuting by using transit, biking or walking, carpooling, vanpooling and other creative transportation modes to get to work and back. Interested in getting your company involved in the challenge, or just looking for creative commuting tips? Visit waytogo.org/for-employers/employer-services to learn the easiest ways to get started.

I-25 MyWay is offering transit, vanpool and carpool incentives to commuters willing to try a new mode of transportation between Colorado Springs and Denver.

More than 3,000 metro area riders try winter biking

Friday, Feb. 8 was International Winter Bike to Work Day 2019, and Colorado dominated the world leader board! The day was bitter cold and due to a storm two days previous the streets were snow-packed: Despite that, riders braved the weather to get their early-morning cardio in and get their blood moving. While Way to Go estimates that many riders rode other days due to the weather, the high pledge participation is a testament to the rising profile of biking as a commute choice for Coloradans year-round. Around 3,600 committed to riding, with nearly 4,000 making the pledge statewide.

Bustang adds service to Denver Tech Center

Bustang, the Colorado Department of Transportation’s interregional express bus service, begins service between Colorado Springs and the Denver Tech Center (DTC) Monday, Dec. 17, 2018. In addition to serving one of the largest employment centers along the Front Range, expanding the number of trips between the two cities will help to relieve commuter traffic along Interstate 25, including the 18-mile Gap segment currently under construction between Monument and Castle Rock.

2018 Go-Tober Challenge concludes

Of those, more than 2,000 took at least one trip during the month of October using a method other than driving alone, and 1,899 made the goal of at least one day per week.
