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.
Help us count!
We are seeking volunteers to help count bicyclists and pedestrians Sept. 14, 15, 16 and 18. The city of Durango undertakes the count every other year with the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project. The bicyclist and pedestrian counts help us understand how infrastructure is being used and secure grant funding for projects such as sidewalk repair, bicycle facilities and transit system improvements.
A total of 77 two-hour volunteer slots need to be filled. This is an awesome opportunity for you and your friends to help us improve our transportation system in Durango!
