Get Ready to Ride the Climb!

June 6th, 2017
Get Ready to Ride the Climb!
New Summer schedule June 12 – August 15 
FREE SERVICE for the first week June 12 – 16
(new schedule will be at this link sometime tomorrow – schedule attached to this message below)
(Note that if you are on a limited budget, you can get a further discount on fare.)
Via has agreed to offer a later morning route for the Climb for this summer. This is a bit of a trial so they can judge whether people will ride the Climb enough to justify this and, perhaps, other additional routes.
Try riding down to work one day, take it one-way to pick up your car at the shop, or invite your friends for a fun event, and give it a try. 
Happy Hour, Wed. Farmer’s Market, Mid-day lunch and movie, Breakfast or Lunch out, Day at the library or at art or museum events…

Do you support the Climb?

May 2nd, 2017
Via, who operates the Climb and the transportation planner for the County who helps to fund it, ventured to Gold Hill to meet with a group of people (8 of us) interested in supporting the Climb.
Via is willing to try an additional run during the week to meet the request for a later morning bus if we assure them there is support for the Climb. The additional run we talked about that would fit easily into the schedule is a slightly later morning run which would leave GH at 9am with a return from Boulder about 10am (times not firm yet).Check out the current schedule at
The way we demonstrate support for the Climb is by actually riding it.
The average ridership during the school year is 16 per day, the majority of which are the school kids, so we have to at least match that during the summer to show a minimal support. Their actual goal is 5-6 riders per run. 
One thing we learned is that if you are over 60, you can ask for a Via car to meet you at the bus stop and take you (like a taxi) wherever you need to go in Boulder – to a Dr. appointment, grocery store, etc. The rules don’t allow the Via vehicles to transport anyone younger. the Climb is an exception.
Please let me know if you are willing to try riding the Climb this summer so I can get a count. I also need to know how often you expect to ride it. Of particular interest is knowing if you expect to ride the proposed 9am bus from Gold Hill.
For anyone interested in brainstorming how to make the Climb a really fun service for GH and 4Mile (Happy Hour, afternoon movie, ??), we will have a short get-together to talk about how to make it enticing and how to get people to try it. Please also let me know if you can join us for that discussion.

The Climb news

June 28th, 2013
   Hello Climb Community!  Important News Below!
The Climb’s Jamestown Route Discontinued

We regret to announce that due to insufficient ridership on the Jamestown Climb route, the route will be permanently cancelled as of June 30, 2013. The Gold Hill route remains in operation.

If you have any questions, please contact Denise Dolan at 303-447-2848, ext. 1012 or email at  Thank you for understanding.

Keep The Climb running! The Climb is a community program and relies on local support to operate.  Buying a pass at any level, even if you do not ride often, helps keep the price low for others and shows support.  Boulder County pays over half the cost of operating The Climb. This year, we need to raise $9,000 from the community to meet the County’s match requirements.
The Climb is a member of the Via family of services.  Via is a private, nonprofit organization serving Boulder County. See or call 303.447.2848 for more information.
