From Boise’s downtown core, with the new Main Street Station transportation hub, to continuous improvement of parking as well as commuter and supply chain routes in and around the city, we’re applying grants, private capitol and other funding to transform our community for efficient use and economic sustainability.

Internet Connectivity

Knowing that high-speeds connections to the cloud add a world of valuable business connections has led Boise to invest in a high-speed fiber backbone to serve our growing segment of high-tech businesses.
