The Park City Transit System

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Jun 28, 2017

Park City TransitThe Park City Convention & Visitors Bureau have shared in detail the three new elements that have been added to the Transit System in Park City this month, you will now be able to catch a bus along one of the following brand-new or expanded routes now:

Electric Xpress: On June 23, Utah’s first zero-emission, battery-electric bus fleet started traveling up and down SR224. The Xpress route provides service every 10 minutes from early morning to midnight, seven days a week. Noise from the six-bus electric fleet will be negligible (clocking in at only 57 decibels) and will reduce operating costs to just $.19 a mile: the fuel efficiency of each bus is an impressive 21.4 miles per gas gallon equivalent. By limiting stops to primary origins and destinations, the travel time between the two transit centers will be a speedy seven minutes!

The Electric Xpress visits the Kimball Junction Transit Center 1899, West Ute Boulevard

PC/SLC Connect Expansion: On June 26, bus service between Park City and Salt Lake doubled from 8-to-16 total daily runs. There are 4 morning, 1 midday, and 3 evening runs in each direction. “This route enhancement was a high priority among projects funded by the sales tax initiatives,” said Transportation Planning Manager Alfred Knotts. “Reducing trips to and from Salt Lake also ties directly into our City’s climate goals.” Route 902 buses, as they are known, will now terminate at the Kimball Junction Transit Center, rather than the Old Town Transit Center. Passengers can disembark at Kimball Junction and catch the new Electric Xpress down SR224. “The Electric Xpress will work hand in glove with the PC-SLC Connect to bring people up the mountain and into downtown Park City more frequently and rapidly,” said Public Works Director Blake Fonnesbeck. While a transfer is necessary, this shortened route helps offset the increased cost of doubling the number of routes from the Salt Lake Valley. Learn more at the Route 902 website.

Kamas Commuter Route: On June 26, the first of several transit connections from eastern Summit County rolled out. Kamas residents are now able to catch the bus adjacent to Volkers Bakery. With quick service options to Quinn's Junction, Kimball Junction Transit Center, and Park City Transit Center, the commute from Kamas will be fast, easy, and economical.

Riders who use the Kamas Commuter Route or PC/SLC Connect Expansion will also have access to a “Guaranteed Ride Home” program that provides passengers transportation in the event of an emergency or other unforeseen circumstance.

These new programs will also provide alternative solutions once the City’s parking management system comes online in early December. “As people may know, we will start charging for parking in Old Town in December,” said Parking Manager Kenzie Coulson. “But the last thing we want to do is leave people stranded or feeling like they do not have a safe alternative to get back home or to their car parked offsite. So we are making sure to put in place a whole host of options before the paid parking piece is implemented.

A Record Season

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Apr 05, 2017

BHHS April 2017RECAPPING A RECORD SEASON - 2017 was one for the books. Consistent powder storms flurried down all season, leading to deep bases at the resorts and several days of over-the-head snow for skiers and boarders. All 14 Utah resorts made the most of the winter, and skier visits are up across the state. Park City in particular celebrated the precipitation with locals and visitors alike coming off the slopes with grins and high-fives. Both Park City Mountain and Deer Valley report the highest number of ticket sales...ever. As the town continues to strategize around responsible growth, we're glad folks from around the world came here to taste our found-nowhere-else lifestyle.

The winding down of the ski season brings celebrations of all sorts, including the annual pond skimming contest, Spring Gruv concert series, and resort Easter hunts. Between the Eccles Center, Egyptian Theatre, and Ballet West, it's also a great time to be a culture vulture. Here are some of the upcoming events not to be missed. BHHS SeasonSpring Gruv 4/2-4/9

Bye Bye Birdie 4/27,4/28,4/29 and 5/3,5/5,5/6 Egyptian Theatre The Thin Air Innovation Conference (4/5-4/7) Spring on the Farm (4/5 and 4/12) The Monday Night Train UBRA Spring Futurity (4/21-4/23)

Judy and I wanted to say Thank You to everyone who has reached out over the last week regarding our Legend Award from Berkshire Hathaway. Overall, Utah Properties was celebrated as the 12th highest performing brokerage while the Park City Office the 3rd highest sales office was in the network. “Our Berkshire Hathaway professionals are true industry leaders.” said Owner and CEO, Steve Roney. “This year’s convention and honors confirm the caliber and accomplishment of our entire Utah team. I look forward to continuing to excel as a brokerage in support of our diverse client base.” At the end of the day, our clients are the motivation and backbone behind our success. We believe in the power of homeownership and love the state we call home. Here's to another year of exceeding expectations. Ramon & Judy
