Table Mesa Pedestrian Bridge Opens April 28
RTD’s FasTracks program achieves another milestone with the opening of the Table Mesa pedestrian bridge, bus slip ramp and other elements on Sunday, April 28. A celebratory ceremony will take place at the Table Mesa Park-n-Ride on Friday, May 3, at 10 a.m. on top of the parking garage.
The new bus slip ramp and pedestrian bridge will allow commuters to safely cross over US 36, and is estimated to save Denver-bound transit riders three to five minutes of travel time. The bridge and slip ramp are an integral part of the US 36 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.
For more information about the completion of the bridge and bus slip ramp, visit www.rtd-fastracks.com/us36_14.
The City of Boulder needs YOUR face!
We’re collecting portraits of Boulderites, past and present, to include on the decorative glass panels in the new bus stop shelter at southbound Broadway and 16th Street/Euclid Avenue. The Carnegie Branch Library for Local History is supplying numerous historic photographs, but portraits of current Boulder residents are also needed!
Please come have your picture taken at any of the three available dates and locations to participate in this community art project!
• The Boulder Farmers’ Market, 13th Street between Arapahoe Avenue and Canyon Boulevard, on Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to noon.
• The bridge inside the Main Boulder Public Library, 1001 Arapahoe Ave., on Monday, April 22, from 4 to 7 p.m.
• The southbound Broadway bus stop at 16th Street/Euclid Avenue on Thursday, April 25, from 4 to 7 p.m. If there is inclement weather, this site will be moved to the bridge inside the Main Boulder Public Library.
For more information about the community art project, contact Noreen Walsh at email@example.com.
Table Mesa pedestrian bridge opens April 28
RTD’s FasTracks program achieves yet another milestone with the opening of the Table Mesa pedestrian bridge and associated elevators, stairs and boarding plaza. The bridge, which opens to the public on April 28, was set in place last September and connects the Table Mesa Park-n-Ride with eastbound bus connections, saving three-to-five minutes of travel time for commuters heading to Denver from Boulder.
The bridge is an integral part of the US 36 Bus Rapid Transit project. A collaborative partnership between RTD and CDOT, the BRT project will provide 18 miles of bus rapid transit service between downtown Denver and Boulder along Highway 36. Watch for more updates on the US 36 Bus Rapid Transit project.

Help us improve downtown bike parking to better serve your needs! Take the Boulder Transit Center Bike Parking Survey by Friday, Dec. 7, for a chance to win a bike pump! http://svy.mk/TspTWk
Do you currently (or want to) park your bike at the Boulder Transit Center at 14th & Walnut streets? The City of Boulder, Boulder County and Regional Transit District (RTD) are working to improve the downtown Boulder Transit Center area. The project goals include improving the transit riding experience, bicycle access and parking. The Bike Parking Survey only takes a few minutes to complete and your input will help improve bike parking and the overall downtown transit rider experience.
Take the survey online at http://svy.mk/TspTWk.
Complete the survey on or before Dec. 7 to enter for a chance to win one of 10 Topeak mini morph frame bike pumps.
The project team is considering a design that would provide a secure mass bike parking solution: an enclosed bike storage cage that would protect bikes from theft and weather. This bike parking area would be fenced-in and equipped with a keycard pass only available to members. Within the shared bicycle parking storage area, patrons would be able to individually lock their bicycles to racks. This proposed design would remove some of the individual lockers for the construction of the cage. It would provide a greater number of patrons with access to secured and covered long-term bicycle parking. Bike parking racks and lockers will still be available outside of the bike cage, as well.
