How would proposed changes on routes 33, 35 and 35M impact your commute on transit?
No Impact


Do you have any additional feedback on this proposal that you'd like UTA planners to consider?
Not on this proposal. I use the 35M regularly but am retired and pretty much just run errands and attend appointments. Would be nice if the 35M would give the passengers on trax time to get off the train and get to the stop though.

Negatively

I take the 35M at 5:00 and it is the only way to get to anywhere efficiently, if we are taking it to Mill Creek Station that means we are using it for commuting, not just local travel. This also means that we have a long traveling trip to begin with and the 35M is a great time saver, to where it makes commuting from Magna/West Valley actually feasible. The transportation system is designed to get people to and from Downtown, but many of us don't work downtown and so we can't take the Green Line. The Max is the ONLY semi-efficient way to got the TRAX that will take us somewhere other than downtown.

It would be nice to have the east bound 35 start the run to catch the first 06:13a green line .(Sat.)

Most of us will be dead by the time UTA gets its act together! How about focusing on the NOW and getting us frequent bus service!? Use vans if you need to . The 223 which is the only bus on 20000 East only comes once every other hour since the Great Recession of 2008! How the hell can one plan a UTA trip without getting stranded? Forget about it!

I'm not currently commuting along this route, but your proposal makes a lot of sense for those who do commute there.

Name not shown inside Herriman February 8, 2018, 8:45 AM

Herriman is one of the fastest growing communities in the Salt Lake Valley. The 2040 plan shows very little expansion into an area that will exceed 100,000 people. Please extend the Trax line south through Herriman and out to the future Community College site. The current end of the line for Trax is in Daybreak where parking is already inadequate to handle the current load; therefore trying to catch the train there is nearly impossible! There is currently only one lone tiny bus that barely slips into Herriman to pick up riders but the route it follows is so convoluted that it can take nearly 45 minutes from the time the rider boards the bus until the time he/she is dropped off at the Trax station. Unacceptable.

The goal along a very busy and well used route at all times of day and night should be to create fast and consistent routes both for those using just the bus as well as those connecting to Trax. Ending the 35M that early and starting it later would do the opposite, how about you keep the 35M running, add a couple more time stops so the arrival and departure time of the 35M is more consistent(it is very far from it currently). As the city continues to grow at some point you have to realize that providing service on main routes later into the night and very early in the morning will be needed, so why not start planning for and delivering that now. Seems adding 1-2 stops to the 35M, with perhaps a couple more time stops for consistency is the easiest solution.

Based on the concept that BRT is designed for commuting and larger scale rider count the change is in accordance with bus type functionality. From an operational stand point the planners showed look at the impact of increasing headways during off-peak travel on the 35M and shifting operations do reduce headways during the peak periods. A careful evaluation of daily ridership distribution will help determine what is best.
