|Beginning last year, Salt Lake City residents, business owners, commuters, and visitors have been invited to participate in a variety of community engagement opportunities to support the development of the City’s first ever Transit Master Plan.
We are now ready to share the plan’s recommendations, and to hear your questions and comments. The draft plan, developed over the past two years with input from thousands of residents and stakeholders, is available for review online at www.slcrides.org. A hard copy is also available for review at the Salt Lake City Transportation Division during regular business hours at 349 South 200 East, Suite 150, (801) 535-6630.
Public transportation is an essential component of Salt Lake City’s transportation network, and the plan creates a 20-year vision and action plan for service, transit-supportive investments, programs and policies. The plan also includes a comprehensive look at the City’s overall travel patterns, which identifies places where transit would be used if it met the needs of potential riders. The plan also identifies areas where transit improvements are needed for existing riders.
We have concluded our first formal comment period on the draft plan, however, there will be more opportunities for us to incorporate input into the plan throughout the formal review and adoption process.
We visited with Planning Commission on November 9th, and are scheduled again on the 30th. We are also happy to visit with you at a full Community Council meeting or a committee meeting, upon request.
If you haven’t already, we hope you will take a few minutes to tell us what you like about the plan and what, if anything, we missed.
Thank you for helping to improve transit in Salt Lake City! www.slcrides.org
