Seven cities in Utah County, in collaboration with the Utah Transit Authority (UTA), the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), and the Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG), have initiated a study to evaluate options for faster and more frequent high-capacity transit service between Lehi and Provo. The participating cities are Lehi, American Fork, Pleasant Grove, Lindon, Orem, Vineyard, and Provo.
Transit is a vital part of the broader transportation network needed to accommodate growth and guide planning in Utah County. The study is building on the foundation of previous planning and is one of multiple efforts to enhance transportation and mobility in this area. The study will evaluate ridership, travel times, land use, economics and costs for a range of alternatives. Public and stakeholder input will be gathered throughout the process and will be a key component to shaping the study.
The desired outcome of the study is the selection of a Preferred Alternative (transit alignment and mode) that can be advanced to a transit study process for further evaluation.
