City leaders are asking for residents’ feedback on the results of a transportation study conducted at Garden of the Gods. 

The goal of the study is to provide a better visitor experience by alleviating congestion, enhancing access, and reducing emissions, according to the city. The study was conducted by Volpe National Transportation Systems Center and paid for by the Garden of the Gods Foundation. 

The city is now asking for residents’ opinions on the following ideas: 

  • A shuttle service between Rock Ledge Ranch, the Garden of the Gods visitor center, and Garden of the Gods
  • A new ADA-accessible trail along the north side of Gateway Road
  • Increased parking at Rock Ledge Ranch

The city will gather public input during a listening session at Westside Community Center at 1628 West Bijou Street. The meeting will run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, with a brief presentation at 6 p.m.
