New Park City Transit Schedule For Winter Season Begins
With traffic in and around Park City due to increase with all the visitors and employees winter brings, Park City Transit services have changed.
Park City Transit changes service seasonally, making route and timing adjustments to accommodate demand. Here are the updates for the peak winter season:
-The One Red will extend to Quinn’s Junction with slightly modified routing in Prospector Square. It will continue to service Deer Valley Resort.
-The Two Green will remain the same as summer routing, with an extension to Deer Valley.
-The Three Blue to Thaynes Canyon and Park Meadows and the Five Yellow Prospector Express routes begin.
-The Six Lime starts 15-minute frequency from the Ecker Hill park and ride to the Old Town Transit Center, with service to Deer Valley every 30 minutes from Ecker Hill.
-And the Seven Pink extends from the Canyons to Summit Park and will also service Timberline, the Weilenmann School and Woodward.
Additionally, dial-a-ride services will no longer run as a fixed route to Quinn’s Junction. Instead, it’s now an on-demand service and will add Park City Heights and Homestake as service areas.
For those who are visiting or working at the resorts from outside of town, several routes will bring you to the Canyons, Park City Mountain Resort Base and Deer Valley Resort. Park City Transit Manager Kim Fjeldsted says winter sports gear is welcome on the bus but should not block aisles or exits.
Maps of the updated routes can be found at parkcitytransit.org as well as new transit direction guides for resort employees and visitors. Fjeldsted says the transit department welcomes passenger feedback, which can also be submitted through the website.
