Are you in favor of the proposal for route 807?
Yes


Are you in favor of the proposal for route 809?
Yes


Do you have any additional feedback you'd like UTA's Utah County service planners to consider?
This makes the 807 much more useful to commuters coming from PG/AF/Alpine/Highland who work in the growing technology neighborhood around Adobe. A welcome improvement to the route!

The area surrounding 3200 N 1200 W in Lehi is still not being served. This is a relatively densely populated residential area with a significant amount of traffic congestion due to both local traffic and commuters traveling through the area to/from the new commercial developments in the east Traverse Mountain area, with access to local trails, parks, and other areas of significance, yet UTA has consistently ignored this area in their route planning.

Please consider adding afternoon routes on the 807 so students are able to have access to highland and alpine after school gets out. I have students who can get to school using the 807 in the morning but are then Landlocked at 2:00 when school gets out.

It's about time you had a bus that serviced the AF Frontrunner station! Now if this bus could just swing down to Lehi Main St. and pick up riders from Lehi to take them to the station it would be much nicer. I see people walking up and down Mill Pond Rd. (850 E) quite frequently because there is no other option to get into Lehi if you don't have a ride picking you up. Mill Pond is increasingly busy with traffic and not the safest walking or biking route, it would be nice for a bus to pick up, even if just one stop near the Macey's grocery, and get people to and from the station. I understand peak hours and ridership, but really 4 times a day isn't reliable public transportation. I think a shuttle in and out of the station would be very helpful.

Regarding the route 809 I really think that it should be running for all hours of the day every thirty minutes for it to be truly regarded as a full all day service bus route and to also be regarded as Ada Paratransit service fully compliant. By only having the route 809 operate only two times in the morning and two times in the evening it therefore really doesn't qualify as a regular all day full service bus route and it doesn't have to which really hurts the disabled riders in that particular area of town in Utah couonty whom have to solely rely on Paratransit service to be able to commute on and along the same bus route. Also it most greatly affects the frontrunner riders when the route 809 is going to run so unfrequently as two times in the morning and two times during the evening hours it doesn't give those passengers needing to get to the American Fork Frontrunner station enough opportunity to be able to ride during the hours they really want and need to get out espeacially if they ened to get out during the latenight hours and/or midnight operating hours and/or during the weekend and holday non peak operating times compared to that particular bus route #809 being allowed to operate as a full allday full service operating bus route.

Do you have additional feedback about route 664 that you'd like to share with UTA service planners?
There is a delay (a few weeks at least, closer to a month or two) to get involved with the van service. This means that any new hires cannot ride public transportation until they can get access to the Hill systems and then get the paperwork submitted. Anyone who cannot drive during that period will not be able to get to work.


Do you agree with the proposal to eliminate route 665 and replace it with UTA vanpool or RideVan Plus?
No

The flexibility of the bus service is a great benefit to the commuters who ride the Frontrunner and get to Hill Air Force Base by route 664. It would not be possible to use Frontrunner without having a link to the base. Yes, the bus is large compared to the number of riders. Public transportation in general is feasible only with public subsidy. The numbers may be low, but the service is still vital to the riders and is a strong statement of support and commitment to Hill Air Force Base. It reduces the number of cars which would otherwise be on the road, and is a great public relations benefit for UTA as well. The UTA website has no information about what the cost would be if a RideVan Plus would be organized from the Layton or Clearfield station. This morning (10 May 2017) on the Frontrunner, the top level of the car I was in had a total of six passengers when arriving at Layton. That seems like low ridership, too, but we aren't going to curtail Frontrunner, are we? Of those six, four of us transferred to bus 664. We were joined by three more Frontrunner riders who transferred to 664. That made seven riders on a bus with 23 seats. That doesn't seem like such low ridership to me. On the return trip this afternoon, there were also seven riders, only two of whom were in the group of seven in the morning. That makes 12 customers on just the two buses I rode on. I'm sure that there were other riders on other trips to and from the base. The flexibility of choice of times, both morning and afternoon, is a great benefit to the riders.

At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, this news is devastating. As somebody who can't drive, this bus gave me a way to get to work without relying on others. While vanpools are an option, they provide me with little to no flexibility. If the issue is cost versus ridership, why not try decrease the former and increase the latter. Wouldn't it cost less to use vans instead of buses for the routes? Surely a van doesn't cost nearly as much to maintain. Why not work with Hill AFB to increase ridership? The Air Force provides an incentive for people who use public transit, but I wonder how many people know about it. If more people knew that they could get to work essentially for free, without putting miles on their cars, they may be more interested. Also, a major deterrent for people to take the bus, is gate traffic in the afternoon. It is a constant concern that it will take too long to get off base, and you'll miss the next train. If Hill AFB and UTA worked together, perhaps a solution could be reached that would get buses and vanpools off base faster. This would also provide more of an incentive for using public transit.
While the ridership may be lower than UTA would prefer, the riders who use the buses use them on a very regular basis, and have come to depend on them. I believe canceling them without providing a FLEXIBLE alternative would be a mistake.
