The first report regarding the Wasatch County Transit Study has been completed. Below are some the report’s findings and the roadmap for a bus system to possibly come to Wasatch County next year.

Connecting Wasatch

The transit study to look at a possible bus line inside and connecting outside Wasatch County is underway. The study is starting with an online survey for residents to fill out.

Earlier this year seven local government agencies including Wasatch County, Midway, Heber, Park City and the Utah Transit Authority agreed to enter into a study to look at public transit needs in Wasatch County. The Mountainland Association of Governments is the study manager. They’ve contracted with a team of consultants to conduct the study.

Last week the Wasatch County Council agreed to participate in a Transit Study that will look at the feasibility of a commuter bus line running through Wasatch County. With six other government organizations involved, the study is now about a month away from starting.

Metropolitan Planning Director Shawn Seager with the Mountainland Association of Governments, or MAG, says that after a presentation from MAG on the transit study, Wasatch County council voted to participate in the study.

Roughly 30 percent of Park City’s workforce comes from Wasatch County. Which is one reason why Midway, Heber and Park City are all considering a joint study to look at the possibility of adding a commuter bus line between the communities.
