Denveright Vision & Values – share your opinion

deverite_vision_6_values_graphics

 

During the summer of 2016 project teams from Blueprint Denver and Denver Moves: Transit held focus groups with Denver Land Use and Transit Stakeholder representatives.  Their goal was to better understand how Denver residents, employees, and visitors want land use, mobility and transit in Denver to be over the next 20 years. Both Blueprint Denver and Denver Moves are part of a larger community-driven planning process titled Denveright, which challenges you to shape how you want to Denver to evolve in four key areas: land use, mobility, parks, and recreational resources.

 

As 2017 begins there is still another opportunity for you and your community to contribute to the development of the Denveright vision by looking over the graphic plan and providing feedback at the bottom of this webpage:

Longmont Member Drive Event at Pumphouse: Oct. 25, 2016

ego_happyhour_flyer_cropPlease join eGo CarShare on October 25, 2016 as we launch a new member drive in Longmont. With two cars in Longmont at 6th & Main St. and 287 & Pike Rd., eGo CarShare hopes to encourage more Longmont residents to take advantage of its affordable and convenient service. Gas and insurance are included in driving rates, along with 24/7 access to a fleet of more than 50 cars and trucks at locations in Longmont, Boulder and Denver.

eGo CarShare began serving Longmont in 2015 with a supporting grant from Boulder County’s Mobility for All program to provide additional  transportation options for low-income residents. Boulder County Housing Authority (BCHA) residents and Longmont Housing Authority (LHA) residents in Longmont receive free eGo memberships and discounted carshare usage rates. eGo is also currently offering new members from the general public $25 in driving credit with promotional code LONGMONT$25.

“We’re thrilled about launching a member drive in Longmont to bring new multi-modal options to residents here. CarSharing offers many benefits to the community of Longmont. As Longmont’s population grows, so will its demand for more transportation options,” said eGo CarShare’s Executive Director, Karen Worminghaus.

CarSharing coincides directly with the City of Longmont’s Multi-Modal Transportation Plan, with a vision to “develop and improve a safe, efficient, and convenient transportation system that provides viable mobility choices for all Longmont residents.” “We support carsharing as a viable alternative to owning a car in Longmont,” said Longmont Transportation Planner Phil Greenwald. eGo CarShare has worked with the Longmont Downtown Development Authority to help secure its downtown location in the parking lot off 6th & Main street. “We have been pleased to work with eGo CarShare to offer service in Longmont. It’s a convenient service that contributes to transportation options in Longmont’s downtown,” said Kimberlee McKee, Executive Director of the Longmont Downtown Development Authority.

Access to carsharing for the greater Longmont community integrates effectively with Boulder County’s RideFree Longmont program, which allows all of Longmont’s local buses to be free for anyone to use. “We are proud to support eGo CarShare’s member drive in Longmont. CarSharing fulfills a vital role in the  transportation options that are available to low-income and underserved populations, that are the focus of our Mobility for All program,” said Angel Bond, Mobility for All Program Manager, Boulder County Transportation.

Billing Updates & Account Details

Engage_web_settings_Account_StatementWe hope you are enjoying our new system, particularly the enhanced mobile web site. If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to review the various software tutorials we have posted recently on our blog.

Please familiarize yourself with the new billing process by logging into your account.

Once you are logged in, please click this link to see your current “Account Statement” to view current activity in August.  You may also click this link to see invoices from July 2016

We use a new real-time-billing (RTB) system to calculate the charges on your statement:

  • The full cost of each trip (including actual mileage plus any additional fees and credits) should be charged to your payment card on file about 2-5 days after the end of each reservation.
  • You can see the costs associated with each trip and the date of individual payment charges during the current month in the Account Statement screen.
  • Toward the top of the Account Statement screen is an amount listed as “Processed Transactions Amount.” This represents the cost of all your recent trips for which we have received (‘processed’) billing data from your vehicle booking. Anytime this amount is more than $1 you can expect this amount to be charged to your card the next day.
  • Occasionally you will see that some of your trip charges will be bundled together, as we don’t always get usage data needed for billing back from each car every day.

If you were charged for multiple trips on July 28th or August 8th:

  • It took us a few days to get everything set-up in our new system and to transfer over all the account data from our old system, hence we couldn’t process most automated charges between 7/21-7/27, so they were processed on 7/28.
  • There was another batch of trip charges from 7/29-8/7 that got bundled together and processed on 8/8.
  • Going forward trip charges should be processed on a near daily basis, but occasionally you will see that some of your trip charges will be bundled together since we don’t always get usage data back from each car every day.

The last several weeks were very busy for us and our small staff worked long hours to make operations go as smoothly as possible. We greatly appreciate your patience during this big transition.
