About the Project
US 36 BRT Project HistoryThe US 36 BRT project began as a two-pronged corridor: the BRT and the commuter rail line from Denver through Boulder to Longmont. The rail and BRT corridors split into two separate projects in 2006 and are now known as the Northwest Rail Line
and US 36 BRT.
The Draft Environmental Impact Statement for US 36 began in 2003 and was completed in 2007. The Final Environmental Impact Statement was completed and a Record of Decision was signed by the Federal Transit Administration and the Federal Highway Administration in 2009.
Public involvement is crucial to the US 36 BRT project. We encourage you to use this site to learn about the project and we welcome your comments and feedback.
US 36 Phase 1 Project CompletePhase 1 of the US 36 BRT project was completed on May 2, 2010, with the opening of the new US 36 and Broomfield park-n-Ride. The new park-n-Ride was relocated from its original location at 120th Avenue to its new location at Arista Grande Parkade, near the 1STBANK Center. The new location features a new pedestrian bridge, bus-only slip ramps and 1,500 covered parking spaces that are shared with the 1STBANK Center.
The $23.3 million U.S. 36 BRT Phase 1 project is the first project to be completed as part of the FasTracks program. All the improvements--including US 36 and McCaslin, and US 36 and Church Ranch Park-n-Rides--combine to save bus commuters up to 15 minutes each way between Denver and Boulder.
