Kimball Jct. Circulator is forward thinking and forward moving

PARK CITY, Utah. — Now that inclement weather and pandemic protocols are both easing, increased travel, albeit still close to home, is becoming more prevalent. The Park City Transit system is a free, convenient, efficient, COVID conscious, bike-friendly, and environmentally friendly way to get precisely where you need and want to be.

Preteens may be old enough to hang out with their friends in Kimball Jct, but the round-a-bouts, not to mention the major traffic intersection, can be a tad intimidating for the uninitiated. The Kimball Jct. Circulator has just the remedy. Want to hit all the stores for clothes shopping? This may be for you. Looking to taste breakfast, lunch, and dinner in separate spots, take the Circulator.

The Kimball Junction Circulator offers free rides in the Kimball Junction area. Just wave down the driver when you see the van coming and hop off anywhere you’d like along the designated route. You can also check the van’s location with the myStop Mobile app (iPhone & Android) or go.parkcity.org.

Another lesser-known option is the On-Demand piece of the public transportation puzzle.

How does Park City Transit On-Demand work?

Passengers can request a ride by dialing (435).640.7819. Once a ride request is received, a Park City Transit vehicle will arrive no more than 15 minutes after the specified pick-up time.* Rides are completed on a time and space-available basis, so wait times may vary. 

*To guarantee pickup within 15 minutes of requested time, request your ride at least one hour in advance.

Microtransit will soon be in the lexicon of people in Park City:

Additionally, “microtransit is a critical part of an integrated, all-encompassing transit system.” Summit County representatives write on their website. For example, a new offering coming to fruition is the County’s First and Last Mile Program: In most places — even in parts of the largest cities — high-frequency transit isn’t within walking distance where many people live and work. Microtransit can connect new passengers to buses while taking single-occupancy cars off the road, relieving congestion and reducing pollution. For those without access to a vehicle, on-demand public transportation can help unlock employment opportunities and provide access to medical appointments, grocery stores, and other essential services.
