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.
From April 11—June 30, Park City Transit will continue to operate regular spring and summer service, including service on the 6 Lime, 7 Pink, and 11 Black. This spring, High Valley Transit will begin “On-Demand” microtransit service in some Summit County neighborhoods. On July 1, 2021, High Valley Transit will launch fixed-route bus service on the 11 Black and a new route 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 proposed High Valley Transit service, visit highvalleytransit.org, or refer to questions 8 and 9 below.
After July 1, 2021, Park City Transit will continue 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 is an independent transit district created by the government of Summit County, Utah. As an independent agency, it will be overseen by a board of trustees.
From July 1, 2021 forward, Park City Transit will provide 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). High Valley Transit will focus on providing regional service between areas in Summit County and key destinations in Park City. To learn more about proposed High Valley Transit service, see this document on proposed service changes.
Park City Municipal and Summit County are working closely to ensure a seamless transition to separate transit systems on July 1, 2021. 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.

This summer and fall, Park City Municipal is excited to kick off a Short-Range Transit Plan (SRTP) to reimagine our 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!
Existing ADA/Paratransit riders will not lose access to this service.
