As one comment already mentioned, we ought to focus not only on improving our transit system, but also discourage the use of private cars. We should reduce or eliminate parking requirements to new buildings. We could reevaluate parking rates given the high social costs of free parking in our city. We could consider raising taxes or fines to improve the city's air quality. Or we could use the model of Vancouver, Canada to simply maintain car infrastructure, but not expand it. There are many ways to go about it, but the solution will require immense investment in public transit to ensure citizens are mobile while actively discouraging or, at the very least, not enabling private car use.

I really like the depth and thought given to this plan. It looks really good for the most part!

I would just like to say that the most important things to me, and to others that I've talked to, involve expanding late night service. It is simply inexcusable that TRAX only runs until 11:30pm, and that most buses end at or before 7pm! I do not currently live close to downtown, but would really like to frequent downtown more often until I can move closer. I cannot emphasize enough that I would go downtown MUCH more frequently if TRAX was available later, no earlier than 12:30am, preferably until at least 1am or even 1:30! The simple effect of having it available to enhance night life, and to be available in case downtown events get out late, would make the ridership worth it. If Salt Lake City is serious about building upon and improving its downtown life, TRAX NEEDS to run later!

Parallel priority should be given to increasing the frequency of bus routes. This should even include some routes that are already 15 minutes. I ride route 200 to work, and despite the 15-minute times, it is very crowded at peak hours of the day and still runs late at least 1/3 of the time. I would recommend increasing the frequency of the highest-demand bus routes to 10 minutes during peak hours!

Another very important thing to me is to install benches at the majority of bus routes, preferably with coverings at the higher-priority stops. I would prefer the sides of covered bus stops to be open, as enclosed bus stops tend to just trap heat during the summer. I am glad that improved seating and cover at bus stops was mentioned and given its due process in the report. Most bus stops are uncomfortable, many of them are not near shade, and they tend to collect trash that is often left for days if not weeks without being cleaned up, so more trash cans and perhaps even minimal landscaping at higher-priority stops would be nice to see.

Most TRAX stations currently do not have enough seating available, either.

I would also echo that having live bus times available at at least some bus stops should be a high priority as well. I understand it probably isn't feasible to do this at all of the stops right away, but testing it at higher-traffic bus stops would allow it to be tweaked and perfected before rolling out everywhere. This will increase reliability and will be important to improving the bus's accessibility to more people.

Finally, the S-Line needs to be double-tracked all the way and extended at least to the Sugarhouse Monument Plaza ASAP. I am HIGHLY disappointed that Mayor Biskupski has not made this a priority.

Overall, I am impressed with this plan and hope that it can be properly implemented. I just hope that UTA and the City Council takes late-night service, increased frequency, and benches at bus stops very seriously! These kinds of improvements should be considered before new rail lines and BRT.

Additional comments about re-purposing the tennis courts to multi-purpose courts.
Bike Polo is a great activity that needs some dedicated downtown space. The community is active and meets frequently. I don't play that often but would be encouraged to see this in my neighborhood and would get more involved if my kids wanted to take it up.

Matthew Post outside Salt Lake City Council Districts August 7, 2017, 3:05 PM

Hi,

My name is Matthew Post and I would like to share my thoughts on action towards building a Better future for the Citizens of Utah and the United States of America. I highly believe with news and Billboards, Loud Speakers and General Blatant Direction things will immediately improve and change direction. We need to provide the materials and training for the homeless and unemployed to start immediately with Basic Medical and hygiene Attention, then start on Job training with building a type of Base to house, feed, and Bathe our Fellow Americans before starting our plan to build Farm, Landscape, and Effecient Infrastructure. Those who qualify should be encouraged to help create both efficient Water filtration and material recycling.I do believe non Citizens of the U.S.A should be Deported and/or held in a seperate Concentration camp awaiting Trial. The idea of the Accommodation provided during and after the project with all Contributed Duties will uphold the need to make this work and it will with the Correct leaders and Blue Prints. P.s - I am Available.
