Frequently Asked Questions
Several years ago, Park City and Summit County recognized the growing need for transit service to extend further throughout the county. Both agencies determined Summit County is best suited to work with neighboring communities and build a regional transit system, while Park City Transit is best suited to operate service within Park City.
On May 17, High Valley Transit began its on-demand Micro service in some Summit County neighborhoods. On July 1, 2021, High Valley Transit launched fixed-route bus service, including the 102 Gateway (replacing the 11 Black) and the 101 Spiro (replacing the 6 Lime and 7 Pink). From July 1 forward, Park City Transit and High Valley Transit will operate separate transit systems. To learn more about the High Valley Transit service changes, click here.
High Valley Transit is an independent transit district created by the government of Summit County, Utah. As an independent agency, it is overseen by a board of trustees. Park City Transit continues to operate as a department of Park City Municipal Corporation. Park City Transit operators and staff will remain employees of Park City Municipal.
High Valley Transit focuses on providing regional service between areas in Summit County and key destinations in Park City. High Valley Transit operates five bus routes: the 101, 102, 103, 104, and 105, as well as the Micro service. To view the full service map, click here. Park City Transit provides service within Park City boundaries (on the 1 Red, 2 Green, 5 Yellow, and seasonal routes like the 3 Blue, 4 Orange, 9 Purple, and City-Wide), as well as connections to regional transit hubs (on the 10 White Express).
Park City Municipal and Summit County are working closely to ensure a seamless transition. Park City Municipal will guide any planning and public input processes for routes operated by Park City Transit after July 1, and Summit County will guide planning and public input process for routes operated by High Valley Transit from that date forward.

The 6 Lime and 7 Pink has been combined into a new high-frequency route between Jeremy Ranch and Deer Valley Resort, called the 101 – Spiro / 224 Local. This route operates every 15 minutes year-round (twice as frequent as the routes it will replace). Stops no longer served by the 7 Pink are now served by on-demand microtransit. To learn more about the new High Valley Transit bus routes, click here.
The 11 Black is now the 102 Gateway / Kamas Valley Commuter. This service continues to operate with additional stops in Francis. If funding is available, additional daily trips will also be added throughout the day.

This summer and fall, Park City Municipal is excited to kick off a Short-Range Transit Plan (SRTP) to reimagine its existing transit system. This planning process will focus on existing or potential ways to connect major destinations with easy-to-use transit service. Park City will work together with the community to explore options such as microtransit, express routes to major destinations, transit to recreation areas, and more. The final Short-Range Transit Plan will recommend improvements and changes to be implemented over the next several years. Check back on Park City Transit’s website soon for opportunities to get involved!
