Then you’ll want to attend Moving People Forward.

This year’s theme:
Bold Priorities, Bright Future: It’s GO Time!

Within the next 20 years, transportation in Colorado will completely change as we know it. This one-day event will dive deep into the present and future face of mobility and the creative and collaborative advancements that are changing the way people move.

New this year!  The Future of Bike Share
Breakfast forum – limited seating available

The bike share landscape is rapidly shifting as the number of dockless systems in communities across the U.S. steadily rises. While exciting and beneficial in many respects, the changes also pose a lot of questions and possible challenges. What does this ‘trend’ mean for existing bike share programs? How do communities regulate parking and storage of bikes? What partnerships are important and how can stakeholders collaborate to minimize pitfalls and maximize success at the local and regional levels?

This add-on forum will feature presentations from bike share experts followed by an in-depth Q&A session and conversation.

A light continental breakfast is included with the forum fee.

Breakout Sessions:

Each participant will select their breakout sessions on the day of the event. Sessions will feature in-depth presentations and Q&A on the following mobility conversations:

  • Innovations and Public Space
  • Safety / Vision Zero
  • Land Use and Mobility
  • Technology / Data
  • Funding
  • Transportation Demand Management

The Latest News

  • Click the link in our bio to schedule a gift to Bicycle Colorado for Colorado Gives Day and support initiatives like our Safe Routes to School program.

While many adults fondly reminisce on biking or walking to school, most kids today are being driven to school—and just about everywhere else. We’re working to make sure the next generation has similar memories—that they are healthy and grow up experiencing their communities through the joy of riding a bike. Donating to Bicycle Colorado on Colorado Gives Day allows us to continue Safe Routes to School and other programs so kids are empowered and have a strong foundation to achieve these goals.
