Mobility for Life

We are a lifeline for people who need transportation with extra support.

There are colorful balloons behind him.Via’s accessible transportation services help people with mobility limitations — such as older adults and people with disabilities — participate in everyday activities outside the home. We go beyond taking people door-to-door in wheelchair-accessible vehicles. Our uniquely trained drivers take clients door-through-door, ensuring passengers exit their homes and are received at their destination safely.

That means you can rest assured your grandparent with dementia will be checked into the doctor’s office. Or your parent using a wheelchair will be assisted on and off our vehicles. Or your daughter with autism will be treated respectfully and compassionately to and from her workplace.

The Gift of Mobility

Your support will help more friends, family, and neighbors travel for health care, work, shopping, recreation, social events, and more. Donations mean people with mobility limitations can:

  • Live more independent, self-sufficient lives
  • Increase connection and decrease social isolation
  • Receive consistent healthcare
  • Engage with the community and its resources


People who use Via’s services tell us why it matters to them:

  • “Our daughter, who is autistic, uses Via’s services to get to her worksite on a regular basis. She loves it! Your drivers make her feel comfortable, important, and safe.” Teresa H.
  • “Via gives me more power and security in my life as an older person. I never imagined I could get independence, privacy, and dignity again.” Lorraine L. 
  • “I’m not able to drive because of epilepsy. I feel so lucky to be part of a community that offers this kind of help for people like me who cannot drive safely.” Deborah R.
  • “If it weren’t for Via, I would be at home, doing nothing.” L. L.

Background Statement

Via Mobility Services was founded in 1979 to fill a glaring gap for people with disabilities: the lack of safe, accessible transportation. Originally named Special Transit, the nonprofit organization provided the first wheelchair-accessible, door-through-door transportation services in the Boulder County area. With funding support from the Boulder County commissioners, Via initially served 200 people with mobility limitations. Today we serve more than 3,500 clients with 135,000 trips annually.

Via's ridership has grown by 37% in the last ten years, indicating a profound and growing need for the kind of services Via provides. We’re receiving more than 300 new client requests per month. Via is headquartered in Boulder with a second facility in Denver.

Via also partners with local municipalities and organizations to bring transportation to areas that would otherwise be without. Sometimes these partnerships focus on transportation for people with disabilities. Other times the routes are open to anyone in the service area. Revenue from these partner contracts helps fund a portion of the higher-cost paratransit services we were founded to provide. These routes include FlexRide, the HOP, the Lyons Flyer, and The Climb.

Via Mobility Services is proud to provide transportation services that move people back to the center of their community.
