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.

Canyons Resort Expansion

Last week, TCFC Finance Co., the development company that owns the land on which Vail Resorts operates its ski area, and Replay Resorts hosted a community meeting about the new Canyons Village Master Plan to reconfigure approximately 2.3 million of square feet of development in the upper and lower village. The plan was met with support for its efforts to reduce traffic, increase parking, and build a pedestrian-friendly village. The master developer of the Canyons Village at Park City Mountain Resort wants to create a “more cohesive and vibrant village core for all seasons” with the help of a new master plan.

CanyonsPlan

By linking two of North America’s greatest ski areas, Vail Resorts has created Park City Mountain. With 7,300 acres of skiable terrain, it’s the largest mountain resort in the U.S. The Park City experience starts at Canyons Village, and plans are underway to transform the village into a vibrant four-season center of recreation, celebration and imagination. Click here to learn more about the master plan and meet the team behind it all.

Looking forward to the 2016–17 ski season, there are new and exciting things in store for skiers and riders. This is a really long post, so grab a snack and play some ski tunes to set the mood. This list starts with what’s new at Utah’s resorts, then covers deals and passes, so make sure you get to the end of the article.

Last weekend was Autumn Aloft which made the most of our beautiful fall weather and some amazing photos. Looking for something to do this weekend - Snowbird's Oktoberfest runs from Aug 15 - Oct 11. Oktoberfest at Snowbird features music, dancing, traditional German cuisine, and a beer garden. Enjoy a bratwurst and sauerkraut, apfelstrudel and more. Kids young and old can enjoy face painting, a caricature artist, inflatable rides, yo-yo demonstrations, clowns, music, balloons and other activities. Until next week - here is the latest Park City neighborhood video from Berkshire Hathaway.

The beautiful Heber Valley is 15 minutes south of Park City and consists of long-term and second home buyers. The Wall Street Journal cited this area as one of the “best resort value communities”. The Heber Valley offers breathtaking views of the nearly 12,000 foot Mt. Timpanogos and has the Jordanelle Reservoir to the North and Deer Creek Reservoir to the south, both offering a wide variety of water sports including fishing and boating. To the west of the Jordanelle Reservoir, is the base of the Deer Crest gondola allowing access to the Deer Valley resort without having to drive into Park City. Heber Valley is a golfers dream with over 100 holes of golf at the Wasatch Mountain State Park, Soldier Hollow, Quarry Springs, and the private gated community of Red Ledges. The Heber Valley has a newer high school, library, senior center, horse back riding, free concerts and a new fairground arena for Friday night rodeos.

In the Red Ledges Gated Golf Community we have a beautiful home with stunning views of the Mt. Timpanogos mountain range and sits on the new Jack Nicklaus Signature short course - 1075 N Chimney Rock Road is 4,801 sq feet with  4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.

This amazing newer construction home has a floor plan that boasts a main floor master, large gracious great room, large covered deck, a gourmet kitchen, an office, main floor laundry, and Costco Room. The lower level walkout provides privacy with views, 3 bedrooms (2 have ensuite bathrooms), a nice family room, wet bar, and a large storage room. The outside is gorgeous with a gas fire pit, plumbed for gas BBQ upstairs and downstairs, and soft landscaping surrounding the residence. It is prewired for security, media, and generator; and has an over-sized garage with hose bibs, sloping floor and is plumbed for heat.

Yes, my first sentence was about curling - I have curled for a number of years and our team has done very well in the Park City Curling Club. We curl Monday nights from 8 pm to 10:30 pm in a Fall and Winter season.

June 24, 2015

We are seeing an increase in construction and home sales across the United States… And here in Park City we are booming. Last month the Park City Building Department saw one of its busiest /profitable months in recent history. The National Association of Realtors posted that sales of newly constructed homes the first quarter of this year are up 23.7% over the same quarter in 2014 and building permits have soared 11.8% being the strongest since 2007. Low mortgage rates help too… And here in Park City we are busy, busy, busy.

I have the pleasure of being part of a local building project at 770 Hollyhock in the Glenwild Golf Community. Park City Homes Partnership, LLC leads the construction of this home and I handle the Real Estate sale. This home has spectacular views of the Glenwild golf course and the ski resorts of Park City.
