For over a decade, Denver has been at the forefront of shared micromobility in the U.S. The city launched the country’s first dock-based bike share system in 2010 and was among the first to permit the large-scale operation of shared micromobility vehicles in 2018. Since then, Denver has written new regulatory mechanisms and collaborated with micromobility operators to tap into a growing rider base that took over five million trips in 2023 alone. This explosion of shared e-scooter and e-bike ridership has also created growing pains, which Denver is addressing to ensure shared micromobility is safe and convenient, and that it advances the City’s multimodal goals. Join this ScooterShop to learn about the initiatives and regulatory frameworks—and experience the connected micromobility network—that support Denver’s Shared Micromobility Program around Downtown.

Denver has given rise to a grassroots movement aimed at centering the lived experience of people who walk, roll and use public transit: Pedestrian Dignity. Join this 2.5-mile urban hike to experience how people-centered downtown destinations – including the 16th Street pedestrian mall and the Auraria Higher Education Campus – are both connected to and cut off from equitable transportation resources. We’ll explore the combination of commercial streets, urban trails, historical landmarks, and busy thoroughfares that characterize downtown Denver’s pedestrian landscape. Wear comfortable shoes and be sure to bring a sun hat and anything else you need to stay comfortable on this afternoon adventure.

Hosted by:

  • Darcy Kitching, Associate Executive Director of Boulder Chamber Transportation Connections
  • James Warren, former co-owner of the Denver-based Walk2Connect Cooperative; and City of Denver Sustainable Mobility Policy Advisor and Pedestrian Dignity Advocate

This mobile presentation will begin at Denver Union Station, where participants will learn about the history of the historic property and the transit-oriented development that has come as a result of its restoration. Participants will then take the RTD G-Line to Olde Town Arvada. Walking to various points of interest, participants will learn about the city's efforts to improve the pedestrian experience, including discussions about transit-oriented development, parking management, micromobility, transit, bicycling, street closures, and the city's visioning efforts related to future development in and around the historic neighborhood. Also discussed are the developments that have occurred around other commuter rail stations in the city that reduce single-occupancy vehicle use. Following the mobile tour, participants will return to Denver via the RTD-G Line.

Session led by:
Brandon Figliolino, Manager, Community Engagement, Regional Transportation District (RTD)
Kellee Van Bruggen, Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator, City of Arvada
