Park City to expand micro transit throughout city limits
Micro transit has been expanded to all neighborhoods within Park City.
Micro transit, which operates like a free ride-hailing service, is now available from Quinn’s Junction to upper Deer Valley.
The service is a pilot program Summit County’s transportation agency High Valley Transit is operating in partnership with the city.
Park City previously only offered the service in limited areas, like Royal Street in Deer Valley and Park Meadows. This expansion comes after High Valley Transit Executive Director Caroline Rodriquez criticized the small service zones, and advocated for micro transit to be utilized citywide.
Rodriquez told KPCW Wednesday that the Park City zone will not work in conjunction with the micro service operating in unincorporated Summit County — which includes Kimball Junction, Canyons Village, and Jeremy Ranch.
She said the zones were not combined because of the fixed route bus service that already connects the two areas, such as the 10 White Express and High Valley’s 101.
Micro transit runs daily from 6:30 a.m. to midnight. People can download the High Valley Transit app on iPhone and Android to use the service if they’re in the proper zones.
The pilot program ends April 16.
