Multimodal Transportation

Durango is a community that encourages alternatives to using a single occupancy vehicle. Whether you walk, bike, ride our popular Durango T bus and trolley system, or carpool, our Multimodal Division has resources for you. To the left, you’ll find a wealth of information about getting around Durango by modes other than a single occupancy vehicle.

Bicycle & Pedestrian Counts: Click here for the sign up sheet.

As a thank you for volunteering, we are pleased to announce each volunteer's name will be put into a drawing to WIN 2 Roundtrip Tickets to Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad! Your name will added for each time slot you sign up for. The more time slots you volunteer for, the more chances you get to win.

Volunteers needed for September 19-21, from 7-9 am and 4-6 pm, and the September 23 from noon-2 pm.

Every other year since 2009, the City of Durango performs counts of bicyclists and pedestrians. Having accurate data helps the City of Durango to know how our infrastructure is being used and is necessary to secure grant funding for projects such as sidewalk repair, bicycle facilities, and transit system improvements. To conserve costs and encourage citizen participation, volunteers are recruited to conduct the counting. With four days of counting at 11 different locations, there is a total of 77 slots that need to be filled by volunteers and staff.

Your time is greatly appreciated and will make a difference!

West Park Avenue Traffic Calming Pilot Project

In response to neighborhood concerns, the city of Durango will be implementing a traffic calming pilot project for West Park Avenue. The traffic calming pilot project will address speeding and safety concerns with design elements that narrow the roadway and help slow traffic. Paint and delineators will be installed to create pinchpoints and curb extensions. City staff met with West Park Avenue residents and worked with them on the traffic calming design. The design can be found here

The city’s contractor was able to paint the curb extensions and is anticipated to return within a couple of weeks to install the delineators. The city obtained traffic and speeding data last summer and will follow-up a month after installation to evaluate the impact of the pilot project on speeds. The pilot project is anticipated to be in place until a permanent redesign of the street is constructed.
