What is your opinion of the City's proposed Transit Master Plan?
Public Hearings scheduled for mid-Sept, early October
The City Council is asking for your input on a proposed city-wide Transit Master Plan that would help guide the future of bus, light-rail and streetcar systems in Salt Lake City.
The 20-year plan has been in the works since 2013, and will be used by the City and the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) to guide decisions about the timing and location of service and capital investments.
That includes guiding possible decisions such as where to locate additional bus routes, when and where light-rail should be expanded, how frequently TRAX trains should run, how fares should be determined and much, much more.
The master plan’s focal point is a Frequent Transit Network, which is a set of designated transit corridors that offer frequent, reliable service connecting major destinations and neighborhood centers seven days a week and in the evenings. The FTN can be comprised of both bus and rail technologies. Regardless of mode, the network would be developed to provide a consistently high standard of capacity, reliability, frequency, and passenger amenities.
