AboutBTC

Our Mission

To promote transportation choices that are efficient and sustainable and enhance the Boulder community as a great place to live, work and play.

Our Vision

To be the #1 partner for Boulder businesses in promoting sustainable transportation choices.

Our Values

Environmentalism: We believe we must take action to improve poor air quality in Colorado. This means reducing SOV driving and increasing the utilization of other transportation options available to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Sustainability: We believe in creating sustainable, livable communities that rely less on traditional transportation and more on multi-modal infrastructure. This is a fundamental goal to the work we do.

Equity: We believe in creating equitable access to jobs and housing. Transportation costs are prohibitive for many families as they search for new housing or jobs; increasing mobility options allows for more choice and opportunity for everyone in our communities.

Collaboration: We believe in promoting a way of life that helps both businesses and community members; we want to create better recruitment opportunities for Boulder businesses and increase employee retention due to satisfaction.

Innovation: We believe in looking towards the future and using advances in technology to help achieve all of our goals. We will seek out partnerships with organizations who are pushing the limits of what is now possible so that we can all have an improved future.

Background

In 2019, the Colorado Legislature passed the Climate Action Plan to Reduce Pollution with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by the year 2050. We need to do our part. The average miles traveled within Boulder has increased nearly 14% since 1990 from 2.19 million to 2.49 million miles per day. Boulder Transportation Connections is dedicated to helping Colorado achieve this goal by providing green, healthy, and economic transportation solutions for our community.

Who We Are

Boulder Transportation Connections is a 501(c) nonprofit organization and is one of eight transportation management associations (TMAs) in Colorado. TMAs are public-private partnerships designed to address traffic congestion and air-quality problems in communities throughout the United States.

 

In 2020, Boulder Transportation Connections merged with the Boulder Chamber of Commerce. This exciting new partnership will help to serve more Boulder businesses and thus increase our reach and our impact in the Boulder Community.
