The Former Transportation Department is now Community Planning & Permitting and Public Works
In January of 2020, Boulder County reorganized transportation and land use planning, among other restructuring. The changes involved:
- Combining the Transportation Department’s engineering, fleet, and road maintenance functions with other operational and structural services of the county, such as the Boulder County Recycling Center and Building Services, into a new Public Works Department.
- Grouping together similar planning and permitting services that formerly existed in two separate departments – Land Use and Transportation – and moving them to a newly named Community Planning & Permitting Department, formerly known as the Land Use Department.

Boulder County Transportation works to ensure safe and efficient public transportation, both within Boulder County and along regional transportation corridors. The Transportation Department is made up of six divisions: Administration, Engineering, Fleet, Multi-Modal (Bus, Bike, Walk), Planning and Road Maintenance.
