Public transit plays an important role in the multi-modal transportation solution for the Mountain View Corridor (MVC). The project will include roadways and transit in order to help meet transportation demand and offer travel choices in the future.
The preferred transit alternative is on 5600 West in Salt Lake County with a dedicated center-running right-of-way. Transit vehicles will operate alone in their own lanes in the center of the roadway and street traffic will use general-purpose lanes adjacent to the transit. Potential vehicle types appropriate for use include a rubber-tire system such as Bus Rapid Transit or a rail system such as street car or light rail. However, no technology has been selected at this time.
Other transit projects are underway in Salt Lake County that will complement MVC. UTA completed its Provo to Salt Lake FrontRunner commuter rail line. For more information on Commuter Rail, the Mid-Jordan, West Valley and Airport Light Rail lines, click here.
