Safe Walking and Bicycling
If you choose to walk or ride your bicycle to access essential services such as traveling to the grocery store or pharmacy, or for exercise, please practice social distancing. Visit the state order webpage for the latest information on what is considered an essential service. Stay at a distance of six feet or more from other parties. Plan your route using this interactive tool or the 2019 Bike and Pedestrian map .

Boulder B-Cycle remains open, with staff regularly disinfecting all stations. B-Cycle is also offering 90 minutes to cruise with an annual Republic Rider pass instead of 60 minutes. 

The HOP bus is currently operating on a normal schedule, however, if you need to travel for essential services, we ask all riders to follow social distancing rules and stay at least six feet behind the driver.

RTD, which operates all other Boulder bus routes, is currently operating as scheduled for essential travel. Please limit time spent in stations to 10 minutes and, as often as possible, keep 6 feet between yourself and other passengers. A service reduction plan will take effect April 19. View routes and schedules on the RTD website.
