Question of the Month: Transportation Funding


Funding is a critical focus area of the 2019 Transportation Master Plan (TMP) update, as the city’s ability to build, operate and maintain Boulder’s transportation system is facing considerable pressure. Sales tax revenue has not kept pace with the increasing costs of operating the system, and funding from regional, state and federal sources is limited.

For example, due to increasing construction and labor costs, a transportation project that cost $10 million in 2012 now costs about $14.5 million. Yet, sales tax in Boulder has been flattening over the past couple of years.

The 2019 TMP update is an opportunity to reevaluate transportation funding priorities, particularly in the area of core services, and create a new financial plan for 2020 and beyond. You can help us prioritize investments in core services by answering the Question of the Month below or by taking a longer survey

You need to be signed in to take this survey.

Below is a list of core transportation services in the City of Boulder. For each one, please indicate whether you think the service is better than you would expect, as good as can be expected or falling short of expectations. You can also select “Don’t Know” or “Not Sure.”
