Boulder hanging up on downtown payphones

BOULDER — In a sign of the times, Boulder is hanging up on its downtown payphones.

City leaders say that with most people using cellphones these days, it makes sense to remove the four payphones on the Pearl Street Mall.

Molly Winter is the director of Downtown and University Hill Management and Parking Services for the city. She tells The Daily Camera the city had struck a deal with an independent company to have the payphones installed but is now terminating the contract.

Winter says she doesn’t know exactly how much revenue the city has raised from payphone use but notes it is “minuscule.”

City leaders hope to have the phones removed by May.
