Boulder County, CO. – Boulder County Mobility for All, Boulder County Housing and Human Services (BCDHHS), and Colorado CarShare are excited to announce the launch of a pilot carshare program in Lafayette.
The new CarShare vehicle is located at the Aspinwall development in Josephine Commons, off Burlington Avenue. The program will support an inclusive, multi-generational community development to help meet the region’s growing demand for accessible and connected transit serving neighborhoods of affordable homes. The new carshare service will complement existing transit at the Josephine Commons in Lafayette. The community of 153 housing units includes apartment style housing for seniors and multifamily rental units for mixed income families.
The pilot car share program, which is currently funded by Boulder County, is expected to continue into next year, with the hope that funding can be secured to provide a shared electric vehicle (EV) with a charging station that may be available for both Colorado CarShare members and local residents. The initiative will include free carshare credits and deeply discounted membership and rates to residents of Josephine Commons. This initiative is complemented by similar carshare programs in downtown Longmont and at the Kestrel apartments in Louisville. Both of which are also supported by Boulder County, as well as Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT)’s Transportation Demand Management Innovation Grant Program.
