Transit Design

Bus Transit

UDOT is focused on optimizing mobility for people as one of our strategic goals, transit is one of several mobility modes.  Benefits of transit include:

  • Reduced traffic congestion
  • Improved air quality
  • Enhanced community connectivity
  • Improved quality of life
  • Strengthened economy 

As part of recent state legislation, UDOT is responsible for oversight of any transportation (including transit) project where state funds are used and may assume responsibility for any public transit project that traverses any portions of the state highway systems.  This legislation also initiated a new state Transit Transportation Investment Fund (TTIF) for transit capital projects statewide.  Due to this responsibility and funding, UDOT includes the following design links below:
