Park City Transit updates
New and expanded routes open just in time for holiday
You may have noticed changes to the Park City and Summit County public transit system in and around town. They are all part of the community’s strategic transit plan to make taking the bus fast, convenient, and headache-free. Here is a summary of recent and current route changes and additions:
The Electric Express rolled out Friday, June 23. This battery-electric express route connects Kimball Junction to Old Town Transit Center with stops at Canyons Transit Hub and Fresh Market. The line runs every 10 minutes from 7:00 am to midnight.
PC/SLC Connect Expansion: Starting, Monday, June 26, bus service between Park City and Salt Lake doubled from 4 to 8 daily runs each way. There will be four morning, one midday, and three evening runs in each direction. Route 902 buses, as they are known, will now terminate at the Kimball Junction Transit Center, rather than the Old Town Transit Center. Passengers can disembark at Kimball Junction and catch the new Electric Xpress down SR224. While a transfer is necessary, this shortened route helps offset the increased cost of doubling the number of routes from the Salt Lake Valley.
FREE Kamas Commuter to Park City (11 Kamas Black): Also starting Monday, the first of several transit connections from eastern Summit County rolled out. Kamas residents can catch the bus adjacent to Volkers Bakery and take it to Deer Mountain Affordable Community Housing, Quinn’s Junction, Park City High School, Fresh Market, and Park City Transit Center.
12 Kamas Link: This new link service is timed to meet the Kamas Commuter and transfer passengers between the hospital and Kimball Junction Transit Center.
8 Brown: This now circulates through the Trailside and Kimball Junction neighborhoods, but no longer provides service along SR224. Frequency has also increased to every half-hour.
9 Purple and 4 Orange to Deer Valley are now in operation.
Riders who use the Kamas Commuter Route or PC/SLC Connect Expansion also have access to the “Guaranteed Ride Home” program. This provides passengers transportation in the event of an emergency or other unforeseen circumstance.
