Park City Municipal introduces winter transportation plans

PARK CITY, Utah – As the winter sports season begins, Park City Municipal is launching several traffic mitigation efforts in the hope of easing congestion.

Park City along with the Park City Council and community partners has been preparing to offer alternatives to single-occupancy vehicle travel to protect neighborhoods and businesses, and improve traffic circulation.

Starting December 11, transit services will become more frequent. According to the city, most routes will feature 20-minute frequency or better. New transit services including a microtransit pilot program, a bus route to Park City Heights and the Richardson Flat Park-and-Ride will also be offered.

The city is also coordinating with both area resorts to help improve traffic circulation. Park City Mountain has rolled out a transit-first circulation plan for its Park City Base area, which is intended to compliment the resort’s new reservation system. Deer Valley Resort is incentivizing employees to park at the Richardson Flat Park-and-Ride, and collaborating with the city on a traffic management plan.

Modifications have been made to the city’s parking plan. Paid parking has been implemented beginning November 18 in city-owned parking lots in Old Town. Parking without a residential parking permit and cutting through Park City residential neighborhoods is prohibited.

By compiling four years of data, the city has developed a Winter Traffic Peak calendar residents can use to inform travel decisions. The city is encouraging everyone to consider traveling outside the hours of 7:00-9:30 a.m. and 3:30-6:00 p.m. on Peak Days if transit is not an option.
