SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah. — The Summit County Transportation Department is calling on all County residents from Kamas to Coalville to Park City to share their needs and experiences in this survey as it works to revamp its transit system. The survey takes five minutes to complete and covers where residents live, whether they take public transportation, and what would encourage them to utilize it more often.
Currently, there is no public transportation to Coalville and only one bus route, the ‘Kamas Commuter,’ serving Eastern Summit County. According to the county website, residents voted for two initiatives in 2016 that would “provide the funding needed for a comprehensive and regional transportation approach for Summit County.” Included in these plans is an enhanced county-wide bus service.
In 2006, Park City and Summit County established a Joint Transit Advisory Board (JTAB) to make recommendations to both entities about bus routes, schedules and fees, bus aesthetics and strategic planning efforts involving supplemental service and transit system regionalization.
Completing this survey sooner rather than later will help local voices be heard and ensure comments are taken into consideration.
