For those of us who call Park City and its surrounding communities home – we feel the frustration of the traffic that comes with living in such a popular mountain town! Fortunately, our community leaders have been working hard to find ways to alleviate congestion by “rolling” out some new and expanded alternative transportation programs:

• NEW! E-buses – Park City and Summit County recently launched their first all-electric bus fleet! The Electric Xpress will connect the Kimball Junction shopping area with the Old Town Transit Center – running along Highway 224. The new Electric Xpress will run every 10 minutes from 7am til 12am, seven days a week. "This is the Tesla of the bus. Get out of your car and ride this." says Blake Fonnesbeck, City Hall's public works director. Caroline Rodriguez, Summit County's transportation planning director, said in an interview "What's great about this new fleet is that it is all electric and purely battery operated. Plus, we are the first mountain community to have a fully electrified express route." Rodriguez said the new all-electric fleet embodies the county and city's commitments to energy efficiency and sustainability, while providing more options for riders. And remember… noise from the buses will be minimal, so be on the lookout when you’re in pedestrian lanes.

• New! Summit Bike Share – Summit County recently launched a new Summit Bike Share system to offer pedal-assist bicycles as an alternative way to get around the Park City area. This trend has become popular in many major cities as an enjoyable and affordable option for running errands, commuting for work, or just for fun! And with the many paved rail systems already in place in and around Park City, you can easily get to where you want to go. The Summit Bike Share system has 9 stations, and 88 bikes with 24/7 availability. The Pedelic bikes are just like a basic bike – nothing complicated to learn. Just get on the bike and start pedaling and the Pedelic bike will kick in an extra boost of power to help you get up hills without even breaking a sweat! Riders can register for passes that range from single-trip, daily, monthly or annual. Click here to to learn more!
