Accessible Boulder: ADA Self-Evaluation & Transition Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

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.

After receiving dozens of community comments on accessibility challenges present in the city's transportation infrastructure, staff has created a draft ADA Self-Evaluation Plan. Thanks for your valuable input and participation. Watch this page for further details or sign-up for the ADA Plan email list to keep informed about upcoming events. Given COVID-19 gathering restrictions, staff plans to provide virtual content for community review through Be Heard Boulder, likely this fall.

ADA Barriers & Access-for-All Mapping

10 months

We invite you to drop a pin on the map to mark areas where you've experienced accessibility challenges, and provide more info (or even a photo) of what exactly the barriers are there. We're also curious to know what's working well - what areas feel accessible to all?

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. Part of this effort involves hearing from the community what accessibility barriers exist and where there are opportunities for improvement in the city's transportation system. 

CLOSED: This period to add pins to this map has concluded. We appreciate the thoughtful and detailed feedback provided by dozens of Boulder community members. Staff is now in the process of drafting the ADA Self-Evaluation portion of the plan. Look for an ADA Plan Open House coming in March/April 2020. Sign up for the ADA Plan mailing list or watch this BeHeard Boulder site for more information.
