The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) and their project partners; the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), Wasatch Front Regional Council, the Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG), Salt Lake County, and the cities of Lehi, Bluffdale, Draper, Sandy, and South Jordan will have a public open house for citizens to learn more about the Point of the Mountain Transit Study and provide input on future transit improvements at Point of the Mountain connecting southern Salt Lake County and northern Utah County.  The open house will be today, Thursday, November 14, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at American Preparatory Academy, 11938 Lone Peak Parkway in Draper. UTA is acting solely as a facilitator for the study process to comply with federal requirements. 

Travel around the Point of the Mountain is a critical issue. The Point of the Mountain Commission, established by the Utah Legislature, has asked UTA to facilitate a study addressing this issue. The study will solicit feedback from the public on transit preferences and future goals for potential transit corridor improvements affecting rapidly growing communities north and south of Point of the Mountain. Aspects of the study requiring consideration include ridership estimates, travel times, travel markets, land use, economics, engineering, environmental impacts and capital costs.  Public and stakeholder outreach and input are key components of this study and the entire project to connect the existing prison site to the TRAX Blue Line, the Draper FrontRunner Station and areas north and south, particularly Silicon Slopes in Utah County.
