Purpose & Goals

The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) is excited to engage with you throughout the Five-Year Service Planning Process. UTA's updated 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan is a vision for the future to guide potential service planning changes over the next few years and get people where they need to go. The changes proposed in this plan are based on systemwide analysis, community requests and feedback, operational and cost concerns, and other factors.

Update! We held an initial engagement opportunity from June 24 until July 12, 2024, to gather feedback regarding priorities for the updated 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan. We are currently reviewing comments and working to update the draft to include phasing for the 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan.

Please scroll through this website to learn more. Check back in August 2024 to review the final updated 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan.

What is the Five-Year Service Plan?

The 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan is a dynamic guide for UTA’s near-term future. Our region is growing rapidly. Where and how we grow has impacts on the transportation network. This vision for the path ahead works to address these impacts through improvements to the transit system. This plan, like a route map, is a snapshot in time. It reflects UTA’s intended service based on the best information available. This plan is updated every two years and considers both the UTA Long Range Transit Plan, as well as other regional and local transportation plans in its development. To learn more, take a look at the previous Five Year Service Plan for 2023-2027.

Plan Goals

For the 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan, UTA is focusing on the following goals:


  • Restore service in areas where it was previously reduced
  • Improve the region’s quality of life by increasing overall access to transit
  • Improve employee working conditions by reducing irregular shifts, creating benefit for riders in more service throughout the day
  • Implement the Long Range Transit Plan and prepare for future service and projects
  • Be responsive to community feedback

More about the draft 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan


 


The following section outlines the updated draft unphased plan for the 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan by year. This is the framework upon which the plan is built, updated, and refined, before final adoption and implementation. These proposed components aren't set in stone and will undergo additional rounds of revisions and changes based on community feedback and other inputs, including stakeholder feedback, operational feasibility, workforce capacity and planning, budgetary considerations, community needs, compliance with federal Title VI regulations regarding discrimination, and ongoing analysis of our system, following public comment. We carefully consider the operational cost and feasibility of any potential change.

As this plan is updated, any additional service will be subject to available resources. There are also some notable changes between this plan and the 2023-2027 Five-Year Service Plan. Compared to the 2023-2027 Five-Year Service Plan, this plan includes more routes that increase coverage in the region; projects that were previously vision items; an emphasis on improving hours for employees and riders, and increased connections. Additionally, two new transit centers and the Davis-Salt Lake Community Connector have been added to the 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan.

Public Input

UTA relies on public participation to shape its service. This Five-Year Service Plan includes route changes that have been prioritized by riders and community members. The UTA Planning team receives public comments daily as they are submitted by riders and community members through the UTA Customer Service Department. These factors have been and will be used to finalize the Five-Year Service Plan and present for approval in February to UTA Board of Trustees. The changes identified in the Five-Year Service Plan will be used to identify and implement changes throughout the coming years and particularly in August of each year (“Change Day”).

In addition to public comments that speak to riders’ experiences on the transit system, the UTA Planning Department also refers to previous public comments from various efforts including the Long-Range Transit Plan, the previous Five-Year Service Plan, as well as Change Day public comment period This information is combined with technical analysis and consideration of operating and cost constraints to develop the 2025-2029 Five-Year Service Plan.

Constraints

UTA has fixed resources, including workforce considerations in operations. We carefully consider the operational cost and feasibility of any potential change. As this plan is developed, transit service is subject to available resources. Some changes may also show up in future Five-Year Service Plans or the Long Range Transit Plan.

Community Engagement

Public feedback on the proposed changes in this draft plan will be considered alongside additional planning inputs, to determine phasing and final plan development. Public input on transit priorities and needs help us the most to understand how the community interacts with the transit system. Additionally, identifying key factors of both benefit and concern in both the current public transit network, as well as the draft plan proposed here, support UTA in making community-informed decisions about future transit service.

UTA will take additional public comments beginning in August 2024 on the updated final version of the Five-Year Service Plan, which will include phasing.

This ensures UTA maintains service coverage in this area of Sugar House.

Reason for Change:Replacement or consolidation of other routes.


Route 227: Route modification.

More information: Route would end on 2700 West north of 4700 South when Midvalley Express (MVX) opens, as those would be redundant services.

This section of State Street does not currently have any bus service, so Route 871 would fill a gap in service and set the stage for further service improvements proposed on State Street in the Long Range Transit Plan. The connection to Draper Town Center TRAX Station would be eliminated, and instead of traveling eastward on 12300 South, the route would travel north along State Street to the Sandy Civic Center TRAX Station. Service frequency would be increased on weekdays from 60-minute frequency to 30-minute. Coverage to Draper Town Center TRAX Station would be provided by Route 126, 12600 South/Rosecrest.
