A preliminary version of a transit demand study for Wasatch County has been prepared under the supervision of the Mountainland Association of Governments and was introduced to the Summit County Council on Wednesday afternoon.

 

The study is looking at three basic elements—a transit connector from Wasatch County to Park City; development of transit within Wasatch County; and a connector from Heber to Utah County.

The Heber City Council reviewed the findings of a study that was conducted to explore the expansion of public transit options in Wasatch County and has determined that although there is a need for that service, now is not the time.

 

The proposed public transit expansion would include improved local service in Heber and Midway, daily Heber to Park City bus routes, Heber to Utah County commuter lines, as well as vanpool services based on demand. 

 

Heber City

The Heber City Council has moved to accept federal relief funding through the CARES Act in order to help with some of the costs associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Heber's share of CARES Act funding is just shy of $1.5 million and was determined by the city’s population. In order to accept the money, the city must agree to only use the funds to directly respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The money cannot be used to offset any city revenue shortfalls due to the crisis.
