Staying the Course
Progress While Experiencing Significant Growth
As part of the initial plan assessment phase of the TMP update (known as phase 1), an extensive inventory was done on what had been accomplished under the current policy direction since 1990. This inventory looked at the programs that have been established and facilities built under this policy direction. These include:
The results of these investments and other characteristics of the community produce travel behavior in Boulder that is quite different from travel behavior in the rest of the region. Boulder has a significantly higher use of the non Single Occupant Vehicle modes, resulting in a vehicle-miles-of-travel (VMT) increase that is about one-fifth that of the region. Since 1994, these differences have avoided about 1 million miles of daily vehicle travel in the Boulder Valley.
