My Proposed Restructuring of UTA Routes-Route1

Ok, I am going to go rout by route and show how I would restructure the UTA to make it a more efficient transit system.

I will go through my proposed route system using the route numbering system I proposed in an earlier post.

Route 1:

Route will start at Hogle Zoo, travel via Sunnyside, Foothill Blvd, Wasatch Drive, Medical Center Driver, and North Campus Drive to the University of Utah Hospital. Then via North Campus Drive, 100 South, Virginia Street, 11th Avenue, E Street, 9th Avenue, B Street, 3rd Avenue/1st Avenue/ State Street, 200 South, 300 West, 600 North/700 North, Starcrest Drive, 400 North and Doralma St to the Center for the Visually Impaired.

Benefits of this route: Will give direct service to Hogle Zoo full time, will increase service across the U of U campus making travel easier, will provide a faster ride across North Salt Lake than the current 18/19/20 service. Will replace route 1 and portions of routes 18, 19, and 20.

Frequency: M-F Peak: 20 Min, M-F Off-Peak: 30 Min, Sat: 30 Min, Sun: 60 Min

Buses: Route should use 35ft. buses but do to NIMBYism in the Avenues and tight turns 30ft buses will be assigned.
