Sustainable Transportation State Director

This is an opportunity to help create a more equitable and sustainable transportation system in Colorado by working to shift statewide transportation funding, policy and practices; and to shape new transportation system dialogue and decision-making that improves road safety, climate and health impacts, and accessibility to transportation options. The Sustainable Transportation State Director will report to the Director of Government Relations and work closely with policy staff as well as the Denver Streets Partnership (DSP) division staff. The position supports a three-year, grant funded initiative that will build and be informed by a statewide coalition focused on promoting biking and all forms of healthy, sustainable transportation including walking and transit. 

The Sustainable Transportation State Director will be a self-starter who will establish high level state official relationships and represent Bicycle Colorado with government officials, stakeholders and the public. The Director will create and share strategy recommendations to the team, and execute on strategic objectives to change policies and funding practices.  

The position is supported by grant funding through the end of 2024.

The State Transportation Director will work primarily out of our LoDo office in Denver. Remote work options are available due to the COVID pandemic. Some evening and weekend work is required of all team members. 

We encourage all applicants to learn more about our work at bicyclecolorado.org and review our core values; commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion; and full Strategic Plan before applying.

We will begin reviewing applications as received on or before the week of August 23, 2021.

We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to denverfoodrescue.org or dug.org to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
