EcoPass Discounts

Boulder Transportation Connections and GO Boulder offer up to 50% reimbursement of a company’s first year EcoPass contract and 25% reimbursement of a second year contract. For businesses with 10 employees or fewer, reimbursement of $60 per employee will be provided for year one and $30 per employee for year two. If the EcoPass contract is over $10,000, the reimbursement will be for three years of 25%.

To receive these reimbursements, an employee on staff is required to become a participant of Connect Boulder. In addition, your company could be required to distribute a before/after transportation survey to employees including some type of EcoPass promotion.

This EcoPass reimbursement program is budget dependent and subject to change based on fiscal constraints. Receipt of a year one rebate does not guarantee that a year two rebate will be available should budget conditions deteriorate.

If your business is located outside of the city of Boulder, Boulder County is also currently offering a multi-year EcoPass discount (60% off of the first year's contract price, 30% off of the second year's contract price) to all businesses and neighborhoods signing up for their initial EcoPass contract.
