Improving Public Transportation
For Salt Lake City Residents
Between 2015 and 2040, population and employment in Salt Lake City (SLC) is expected to grow substantially (19% and 8% respectively). By 2040, more than 40,000 new residents and 20,000 new employees are expected. SLC residents have expressed a desire for increasing transportation choices, and as we grow, our transit system should be a first class choice for mobility. Mobility offers connections for residents and visitors; connections to the downtown core, to our neighborhoods, our region, and to nearby recreation areas like City Creek Canyon and the Jordan River. The way we get around SLC is central to our identity as a City.
