After more than six months of work, Boulder County and the City of Boulder are excited to release the results of the Community-wide Eco Pass Feasibility Study (Lyons is one of the communities that enjoys such a pass). The study is available for review at www.BoulderCounty.org/Transportation and Study Result FAQs are available at www.BoulderTMP.net.
For decades the city and county have used Eco Pass programs to reduce vehicle trips and increase personal mobility in the community. Recently, several community-based Eco Pass programs have been successful at increasing the number of residents that have an Eco Pass.
