Travel like an MVP with High End Transportation

October 28th, 2017

When Heather and I flew out to Portland, OR for The 420 Games we had the experience of a lifetime. Heather took 2nd place in Oregon, and being our first time in Portland, we had a great adventure. As much fun as we had, the highlight of our trip was the ride to and from the airport with High End Transportation. We had the pleasure of riding in the Tesla. Our driver’s name was Toni, who drives the Tesla often enough to be nicknamed, Toni Tesla. She was so nice and friendly. Our conversation made the trip even better, and Toni really made us feel like we were riding with family. The ride was a... Read More

zTrip- When Reliability Meets Affordability

July 28th, 2016

There you have it, zTrip. A few taps and a zTrip vehicle is at your service or book a ride for a later time. zTrip also allows you to pick your favorite driver. The choice is yours! A fast moving car service that continues to win the hearts of passengers. Get to your destination on time, in style, and don’t worry about escaping a surge prices. No surge prices? That’s right. Busy periods of the day or inclement weather typically will mean higher fares with Uber and Lyft but not with zTrip. They don’t raise their rates during surge periods, meaning you can always expect a consistent price,... Read More

Taxi-ation Without Representation: Uber Changes in Transportation

May 23rd, 2016

            Like many industries in the world of business, public transportation has experienced a wave of changes in the 21st century. Across the United States, cities are investing more in public transportation as populations, environmental concerns, and frustrations with congestion continue to rise. In Boulder, Denver, and throughout the Front Range, these changes are made apparent through increased RTD usage, the renovation of Denver’s Union Station, and a proposed light-rail system that will connect Boulder and Denver sometime between now and the end of time. Other local changes in... Read More

Boulder by Bus

April 26th, 2016

For Earth Day, RTD unveiled its new University of Colorado A line. This train, offering frequent and rapid service from Denver’s Union Station to Denver International Airport, is one of the most recent in RTD’s efforts to connect the front range through public transportation. While this progress is most definitely exciting, I am frequently reminded by my peers that even the current bus and train lines remain a mystery. Boulder is home to a fantastic transit system. With 13 local routes and 7 major regional and commuter lines, getting around the front range without a car is really very easy.... Read More

Save Money by Going Green: Travelling Boulder and the Frontrange

November 23rd, 2014

  According to the American Public Transportation Association, “the transportation sector produces one-third of greenhouse gas emissions in the united states.” This means that being concerned about the future of our planet includes being concerned with how you are getting around. One option might be moving closer to where you are travelling to, but you might want to consider the alternative forms of transportation in our modern city. Luckily, this is Boulder, where we have great alternative methods of transportation such as B-cycle, the regional bus system, and eGo carshare. B-cycle There... Read More

Boulder is a city made for biking. The network of bike paths that span across Boulder County is unbelievably expansive, and B-Cycle is taking full advantage of this. B-Cycle, for those who are unfamiliar with the company, offers bike stations all over Boulder that allow people to rent bikes for small periods of time. You simply pick up a bike at one station, and then you ride it to another station and park it when you’ve finished your bike ride. It’s an excellent system, especially for those who don’t have access to bikes. Anyway, B-Cycle has some very exciting news to report:... Read More
