RTD’s JUMP has scheduled stops at  both 55th and Arapahoe, and 63rd and Arapahoe, and one can request a stop between these two,  at Oreg and Arapahoe. From here it is a very short walk (400 feet) to the JCC.

Directions to the Jewish Community Center (JCC): The JCC is at 6007 Oreg Ave, in Boulder. To get there turn south onto Oreg Ave from Arapahoe, between 55th and 63rd. The JCC will be on your right. There will be some parking at the JCC with parking attendants to guide you, as well as remote parking at the Flatirons Golf course. Buses will be available to transport those parking at the golf course, back and forth to the JCC.  Please allow extra time for parking and bus transport to the event, should you need to park remotely.

Directions to remote parking at Flatirons Golf Course: The golf course is located 0.7 miles West of the JCC, at 5706 Arapahoe Ave.

Once you arrive at the JCC, please use the main entrance in the middle of the building, facing Oreg Ave.
