Historic Park City is the hub for all things fun and exciting in Park City. We are situated directly between two world-class ski resorts, serve as Park City's dining, shopping, arts and entertainment center, and play host to events such as the Sundance Film Festival. You may say we are the center of it all. We consider ourselves Park City’s Main Attraction. When you are in the middle of it all it helps to be easily accessible.
Park City has introduced a few new transit services that help residents and visitors get here, there and everywhere. With a little pre-planning you may find public transit just as, if not easier, than the good ole American commute.
Take a look at what’s new from Park City transit and see if you can reduce even one car trip each week. Public transportation is free, social and fast. We’ll see you on the bus.
- The Electric Express rolled out Friday, June 23. This battery-electric express route connects Kimball Junction to Old Town Transit Center with stops at Canyons Transit Hub and Fresh Market. The line runs every 10 minutes from 7:00 am to midnight.
- PC/SLC Connect Expansion: As of, Monday, June 26, bus service between Park City and Salt Lake has doubled from 4-to-8 daily runs each way. There are four morning, one midday, and three evening runs in each direction. Route 902 buses, as they are known, 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. While a transfer is necessary, this shortened route helps offset the increased cost of doubling the number of routes from the Salt Lake Valley.
- FREE Kamas Commuter to Park City (11 Kamas Black): The first of several transit connections from eastern Summit County has recently hit the streets. Kamas residents can catch the bus adjacent to Volkers Bakery and take it to Deer Mountain Affordable Community Housing, Quinn's Junction, Park City High School, Fresh Market, and Park City Transit Center.
- 12 Kamas Link: This new link service is timed to meet the Kamas Commuter and transfer passengers between the hospital and Kimball Junction Transit Center.
- 8 Brown: This now circulates through the Trailside and Kimball Junction neighborhoods, but no longer provides service along SR224. Frequency has also increased to every half-hour.
- 9 Purpleand 4 Orange to Deer Valley are now in operation.
- Riders who use the Kamas Commuter Route or PC/SLC Connect Expansion also have access to the “Guaranteed Ride Home” This provides passengers transportation in the event of an emergency or other unforeseen circumstance.

Last fall, Summit County residents passed two transportation initiatives. The combined initiatives will provide the funding needed for a comprehensive and regional transportation approach for Summit County. We look forward continue to see improvements to local and regional transportation services that make getting around Park City and Summit County even easier.
