Transit Design

Bus Transit

UDOT is focused on optimizing mobility for people as one of our strategic goals, transit is one of several mobility modes.  Benefits of transit include:

  • Reduced traffic congestion
  • Improved air quality
  • Enhanced community connectivity
  • Improved quality of life
  • Strengthened economy 

As part of recent state legislation HB 322 (2022), UDOT is responsible to manage and oversee transit fixed guideway capital development projects for which state money is expended.  Prior legislation also initiated a state Transit Transportation Investment Fund (TTIF) for transit projects statewide. Due to this responsibility and funding, UDOT includes the following design links below:
