Boise is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. state of Idaho, as well as the county seat of Ada County. Located on the Boise River, it anchors the Boise City-Nampa metropolitan area and is the largest city between Salt Lake City, Utah and Portland, Oregon. As of the 2010 Census, Boise's city population was 205,671. The Boise metropolitan area is home to about 616,500 people and is the most populous metropolitan area in Idaho, and the third most populous metropolitan area in the U.S. Pacific Northwest region (behind only the Seattle, WA and Portland, OR metropolitan areas). It is also the 104th largest U.S. city by population.
The major Interstate serving Boise is I-84, which connects Boise with Portland, Oregon, and Salt Lake City, Utah. In addition, residents in the Boise area are served with Interstate 184 (locally known as "The Connector"), a nearly five mile stretch of freeway connecting I-84 with the downtown Boise area. Highway 55 branches outward northeast. There is a network of bike paths, such as the Boise River Greenbelt, throughout the city and surrounding region. Among US cites, Boise has the seventh highest amount of bicycle commuters per capita with 3.9% of commuters riding to work. This is commonly attributed to students and faculty of Boise State University, the largest center for higher learning in the state.
Public transportation includes a series of bus lines operated by ValleyRide. In addition, the Downtown Circulator, a proposed streetcar system, is in its planning stage. Commercial air service is provided at the Boise Airport, recently renovated to accommodate the growing number of passengers flying in and out of Boise. It is served by Delta Air Lines, US Airways, United Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Horizon Air, and Southwest Airlines. The east end of the airport is home to the National Interagency Fire Center.
"Boise, Idaho is so beautiful during the spring and summer time. I own a 2005 Ford GT and love cruising around the back roads of Idaho. I like to take a few hours to drive around so I take numerous trips to Twin Falls and Idaho Falls. One Sunday afternoon I was headed out of Boise and some 18 wheeler cut right in front of me causing me to slam on my brakes; which caused this Dodge Ram Truck to rear end me. I was so furious I wrote down the license plate and description of the 18 wheeler who caused the collision. I called my insurance company to report it and also indicated how it happened and gave them the at fault parties information. After taking my Ford GT to the body shop, I found out the repairs were almost $24,000. I knew this was going to hurt the value of my Ford GT no matter how well they fixed it. So this made me do some research on Diminished Value. I found out that me being the non fault third party would be entitled to diminished value due to the accident. During all this my insurance company got a hold of the trucking company and they accepted liability. I than started calling around appraisal companies asking them about the process and what their thoughts were on getting what I'm entitled to.
After calling around for several days, I got a hold of these guys Pinnacle Auto Appraisers. They were more than willing to help me understand the process and even gave me a ball park of how much diminished value of incurred because of the accident. These guys sounded very professional and also knew exactly what they were dealing with. The other companies couldn't really tell me anything definite and felt like they didn't want to do the appraisal knowing they were going against an insurance company. So I hired Pinnacle to the appraisal. Once the vehicle was fixed, they came and inspected the vehicle. Than just a few days later I received a report from them. The report was very thorough and even had an explanation to all repairs completed on my Ford GT. I want to personal thank these guys for everything they have done. Not only did I receive excellent customer service but I also received the full amount of diminished value from the insurance company." Robert Nelson - Boise, ID
