Hop on Board – Park City Rolls Out Winter Transportation Plans 

Efforts are Designed to Curb Congestion this Season 

Park City, Utah – Park City Municipal is launching a variety of traffic mitigation efforts in concert with the beginning of the 2022/23 winter season. With investment from the Park City Council and proactive coordination with community partners, the City has been preparing all year to offer alternatives to single-occupancy vehicle travel and planning for improved traffic circulation, while protecting neighborhoods and businesses.  

This comprehensive plan to address winter traffic impacts in Park City is designed to protect residential neighborhoods, increase transit efficiency, and improve traffic flow by concentrating on the following areas: 

Increased Transit Service Begins December 11 

This winter will feature 20-minute frequency or better for most routes, as well as new transit services including a microtransit pilot program and a bus route to Park City Heights and the Richardson Flat Park-and-Ride. Everyone is encouraged to use our enhanced park-and-ride and free bus service this winter. View winter services here and park-and-ride locations here.  

Coordination with Area Resorts 

The City has coordinated with both area resorts to achieve improved traffic circulation and congestion mitigation. Highlights include:  

  • Park City Mountain – In close collaboration with the City, the resort has rolled out a transit-first circulation plan for their Park City Base area. This is intended to complement the Resort’s new reservation system, which includes elements of paid parking, free parking, incentives for carpooling and transit for the 2022/23 winter season.
  • Deer Valley Resort – The resort is offering incentives for employees to use the Richardson Flat Park-and-Ride and has also collaborated with the City on a traffic management plan for this season.

Parking Plan Modifications 

The Parking team has made modifications to the City’s Parking plan in order to protect local neighborhoods and businesses. Paid parking has been implemented throughout the day beginning November 18 in City-owned parking lots in Old Town. To learn more and apply for permits visit the parking website. Parking without a residential permit and cutting through Park City's residential neighborhoods are prohibited and will be enforced.

Ride-On Commuter Program 

RideOn is an online platform designed to connect commuters to carpools or to encourage transit use, walking, or biking. Participants are eligible for prizes throughout the season. Interested parties can sign up and start logging commute trips to be eligible. 

The City has also developed a Winter Traffic Peak Day Calendar, based on four years of historic data, to anticipate the days the City will experience high traffic volume. Traffic operations, including increased staffing and mitigation, will be implemented on these days. Park City Municipal is encouraging everyone to consider traveling outside the hours of 7:00-9:30 a.m. and 3:30-6:00 p.m. on Peak Days  if transit is not an option.
