NEWS RELEASE: Alternative to Phase 1 Transit proposed for the Mountain View Corridor

For Immediate Release

 

Express Bus Service Proposed as New Phase 1 Transit Alternative for Mountain View Corridor

Public invited to review and comment on proposed Express Bus service April 17 – May 16

 

SALT LAKE CITY (April 17, 2019) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) are proposing an Express Bus service as an alternative concept for Phase 1 Transit of the Mountain View Corridor Record of Decision (ROD). The public can review and comment on this new proposal from April 17 to May 16, 2019.

The Mountain View Corridor ROD committed to constructing and operating a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system on 5600 West from 6200 South to 2700 South. This BRT line is required before future highway phases of Mountain View Corridor can be constructed. The Mountain View Corridor project team worked with UTA, the Wasatch Front Regional Council, Salt Lake County, local cities and stakeholders to develop an alternative express bus service concept to replace the BRT system as outlined in the ROD.

The newly proposed express bus service will be six times longer than the proposed BRT route (29 miles for Express Bus, versus 5 miles for BRT), from Old Bingham Highway to downtown Salt Lake City), and will serve four cities – West Jordan, Kearns, West Valley City and Salt Lake City (including the Salt Lake City International Airport and downtown) – instead of two. The Express Bus service is projected to have a higher ridership than BRT, and will cost less than BRT to build, operate and maintain.

The Phase I Transit Proposal can be reviewed online at  http://udot.utah.gov/mountainview. Hard copies will also be available at the Mountain View Corridor offices (3959 West 1820 South, STE 200 in Salt Lake City). Comments may be submitted electronically on the project website, udot.utah.gov/mountainview, or by emailing  mountainview@utah.gov. Written comments may also be submitted at the Mountain View Corridor offices.

The comment period provides an opportunity for members of the public to review and comment on this proposal. After the ROD is revised, funding will need to be identified in order to build, operate and maintain the proposed Express Bus service.

For Mountain View Corridor updates, follow the project’s social media accounts:

  • Twitter: @UDOTMVC
  • Facebook: @MountainViewCorridor
  • Instagram: @mountainview_corridor

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by UDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated Jan 17, 2017, and executed by FHWA and UDOT.

Media Event: New Autonomous Shuttle to Launch in Utah

New Autonomous Shuttle to Launch in Utah

Lt. Governor Spencer J. Cox will join UDOT and UTA officials on the first official ride in the driverless vehicle in Utah

 

 

 

WHAT:

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), in partnership with the Utah Transit Authority (UTA), is launching a new Autonomous Shuttle Pilot Project that will travel to communities throughout the state for the next year. Lt. Governor Spencer J. Cox will join UDOT and UTA officials to take the first official ride on the autonomous shuttle. Members of the media are invited to ride the shuttle and observe its responses to obstacles in its path, as well as its accessibility for individuals with disabilities.

WHY:

UDOT and UTA are testing driverless transportation technology to identify opportunities to improve safety, access, and mobility to meet the needs of Utah communities.

The Autonomous Shuttle Pilot Project will give the public its first look at a completely autonomous vehicle – meaning there is no driver, steering wheel or pedals. The shuttle operates up to 15 miles per hour and follows a predetermined route. It reacts in real-time to other vehicles, pedestrians and any obstacles that intervene in its path. The shuttle will begin its tour in May at Station Park in Farmington.

WHEN:

Thursday, April 11, at 10:30 a.m.

WHERE:

West Valley Drivers License Division test track

4501 South 2700 West (Constitution Blvd.), West Valley City

The test track is across the street from UDOT headquarters on the west side of 2700 West (Constitution Blvd.) Please access the test track through the designated gate. A sign will mark the entrance.

WHO:

– Lt. Governor Spencer J. Cox

– UDOT Executive Director Carlos Braceras

– UTA Board Chair Carlton Christensen

– Members of UTA’s Committee on Accessible Transportation

VISUALS:

-Lt. Governor Spencer J. Cox and other officials participating in the first official Autonomous Shuttle ride in Utah

-Demonstration of how the shuttle reacts when a person walks in its path (this will likely occur around 11 a.m.)

-Demonstration of how the shuttle is accessible for individuals with disabilities

-Opportunity for media to ride the shuttle to shoot individual footage
