SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah. — Monday marked the first day of a new operation for micro-transit at the Ecker Hill Park and Ride lot. This free, on-demand service is available from 5 am to 1 am year-round, 365 days per year. Riders simply need to download the High Valley Transit app in the App Store or google play store.
Charity Smith, an employee for High Valley Transit said, “We’re excited to be here and for you guys to download the app and get some rides.”
Summit County has contracted with this company which is headquartered in New York but operates in many states nationally as well as internationally. The contract is set up for long-term services in an effort to offer multiple transportation conveniences for Park City, Summit County, Wasatch County, and Salt Lake County residents and is an attractive program for visitors too.
The Ecker Hill Park and ride lot was built a few years ago to accommodate a growing base of commuters, bikers, hikers, visitors, and locals who utilize creative, modern transportation alternatives in their busy lives.
