Transportation Master Plan

  On Sept. 17, 2019, the Boulder City Council approved the 2019 Transportation Master Plan


On Sept. 17, 2019, the Boulder City Council approved the 2019 Transportation Master Plan (TMP). The 2019 TMP is the guiding policy document for the city of Boulder’s transportation system and has been significantly revised and reorganized around ten key initiatives. These initiatives represent the work areas that are key to meeting our sustainability, transportation and greenhouse gas reduction targets by 2030.

View the 2019 TMP and appendices:

The TMP is the guiding policy document for the city of Boulder’s transportation system. Some of the key topics addressed by the TMP include  Complete Streets ,  Regional Travel ,  Transportation Demand Management , and  Funding . 

Additionally, all existing and planned transportation routes and crossings are recorded at Map It: Boulder’s Transportation System.

The 2019 TMP assesses how far the community has come in meeting its mobility and sustainability goals since the last version of the TMP was released in 2014 and establishes transportation policy and investment priorities for the future.
