Vail, Colorado

Mobility Solutions in Mountain Communities

Vail is a year round destination for recreation, nature immersion and cultural activities in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. But the second leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions in Vail is transportation (a combination of visitors traveling to Vail, employees driving to work in Vail, municipal and Vail Mountain operations, and purveyor trucks delivering goods to businesses). Town of Vail developed several programs: (1) electrification (Electric Vehicle (EV) Readiness Plan, EV infrastructure and electric buses), (2) micro mobility through various community programs and (3) regional transportation creating a hub outside of the village for deliveries.
