Carbon Valley Transit Service Feasibility Study
The adopted comprehensive and master plans for the three Carbon Valley communities of Firestone, Frederick and Dacono include goals and policies encouraging use of alternatives to automobile travel, including public transit. In conjunction with those goals, the Towns of Firestone and Frederick and the City of Dacono applied for and received an FTA 5304 planning grant through the Colorado Department of Transportation.
The Town of Firestone agreed to administer the grant per intergovernmental agreements with the other communities. The grant was intended to evaluate the need for transit services in the three Carbon Valley communities (Frederick, Firestone and Dacono), as well as portions of southwest Weld County. Frederick, Firestone and Dacono each provided funds to match the FTA grant dollars as required by that particular grant. This report documents the data collected, alternatives analyzed and recommendations made as a result of this study.
