Public Bus Service Will Soon Run Between Park City and Salt Lake City

The Utah Transit Authority has announced plans to begin public bus service between Park City and Salt Lake City. The service is scheduled to launch on Oct 2.

Utah's ski resorts have long been considered some of the most accessible in the US. The new service will make the three Park City area resorts even easier to reach. It will now be possible for skiers and others to get from Salt Lake International Airport to Park City via public transportation.

People who commute between the two cities are also expected to use the service, along with others who want to visit Park City for shopping, dining and other activities. The service will be particularly valuable during the Sundance Film Festival, when it is virtually impossible to find parking close to downtown Park City.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this article about the anticipated service. Below are details.

The Utah Transit Authority board adopted on Wednesday an interlocal agreement for the service, and the Summit County Council was expected to do so later. Park City previously approved it.

Plans call for charging a one-way fare of $5.50, or monthly passes for $242, for travel on coach-style express buses operated by UTA...

Plans call for 16 buses a day during the peak months of December to April, and 12 a day from May to November.

Stops will include: the Salt Lake Central Station; State Street at 200 South; University Hospital; a park-and-ride near the mouth of Parley’s Canyon; Jeremy Ranch; Kimball Junction; the Canyons resort; Park City Mountain Resort; Old Town Transit Center in Park City; and Deer Valley.
