Accessible Boulder: ADA Self-Evaluation & Transition Plan

In Boulder, we believe that mobility for people of all abilities is a fundamental right. We strive to provide a transportation system with a variety of safe, accessible and sustainable travel options that connect people with each other and the places they want to go. This builds a stronger community where everyone feels a sense of belonging.

The ADA Self-Evaluation & Transition Plan is a project being completed by the City of Boulder Transportation Division to ensure the accessibility of the city's transportation facilities, programs and services for all mobility levels. The ADA Self-Evaluation assesses how well the city’s transportation system—such as sidewalks, curb ramps, pedestrian signals and crossings, and transit stops—complies with the ADA.

City staff is in the process of drafting the ADA Self-Evaluation Plan. Thanks for your valuable input and participation during the ADA Self-Evaluation Barriers Mapping phase. Watch this page for further details or sign-up for the ADA Plan email list to keep informed about upcoming events, including the Spring 2020 ADA Self-Evaluation & Transition Plan Open House.
