Ogden - WSU Transit Project
Project Manager's Contact Info
The purpose of this project is to provide high-quality transit service that:
• Improves the level of service and transit ridership between the Ogden Intermodal Center, the Ogden Central Business District, Weber State University, and McKay-Dee Hospital;
• Assists the City of Ogden in achieving vital economic and community development goals; and
• Is affordable, enjoys wide public support, and encourages local partnerships.
A project connecting downtown Ogden to the Weber State University campus has been on the long-range plan for several years, and two studies have been completed since 2005: the Feasibility Study in October 2005, and the Draft AA in May 2011.
In 2012-2013, the Council and Administration have had a lot of communication with UTA, UDOT, and other stakeholders to move the project forward. At an Ogden Council work session in April 2013, the Council and Administration discussed two possible alignments to be considered in an environmental study, which could be completed in the next two to three years.
When the Council and Administration are ready to move forward with the environmental study, they plan to submit an application to WACOG to fund a portion of the study. The environmental study could be completed in two to three years.
