The purpose of the Transportation Master Plan is to provide a long-term transportation vision for the City of Golden, and guide future transportation programs and projects in a manner consistent with the document’s goals and recommendations. In addition, the Transportation Master Plan provides project management tools for evaluating potential transportation initiatives as well as a project list of priority initiatives within the community of Golden.
This list will be updated on a yearly basis as projects are completed and new projects are conceived.
At the same time the Light Rail station opened, a Community Call-n-Ride bus began operations in Golden, providing flexible transportation options throughout the city, with some regularly schedule stops. Learn more on our Community Call-n-Ride Bus page.
Zipcar, a car-sharing network that allows its members to reserve cars by the hour or day, including the cost of gas, insurance, maintenance and 180 miles of driving, is also a viable option for people who need to drive occasionally, but don’t want the up-front and ongoing expense of owning a car. Zipcars are now available in Golden in the downtown parking garage at 1250 Jackson Street, on the first level. Learn more about the Zipcar car-sharing network.
