HOP_near_Boulder_BookstoreBoulder is unique in many ways! We all have ideas of what makes our town unique, but one aspect I want to point out is our community transit network of the Hop, Skip, Jump, Bound, Dash, Stampede, Bolt. These colorful buses connect the City of Boulder to Boulder County and the communities of Lafayette & Longmont. They increase access to regional transportation [e.g., Denver International Airport, Downtown Denver, etc.] and they are a great option if you are heading out with friends for a night on the town! These ubiquitous bright buses are a household name to locals and really bring the community together. When you consider where you live, think about how easy it will be to use public transit.
