Park City to look at micro-transit service in Park City Heights or Park Meadows

PARK CITY, Utah — Park City Municipal staff are proposing to launch a micro-transit pilot for currently underserved areas, which they see as Park City Heights and Park Meadows.

The Park City Transit bus network currently serves parts of Park Meadows, but does not offer coverage in Park City Heights.

Staff write in a presentation for city council that the micro-service is “not intended to replace direct rides, but to supplement the transit service and provide greater coverage.”

There is an opportunity for the city to partner with High Valley Transit (HVT), Summit County’s transportation arm, which launched a micro-service last year. The estimated cost for the pilot with HVT is $400,000 for six months. That plan would involve three vehicles that would operate from 7 am to 10 pm.

Since HVT’s micro service started in May, it has served over 132,000 riders.

If the city council doesn’t want to partner with HVT, an alternative would be to issue a request for proposal (RFP), which would solicit bids from contractors.

An RFP would be issued for a permanent service.

The city council is scheduled to hold a nearly three-hour work session on transportation priorities on Thursday starting at 3 pm.

City staff write that they plan to return to council on April 28, to request for the micro-service pilot plan’s approval.
