The program is beginning with a small number of high-ridership initial study routes but is envisioned as a long-term process to address delay anywhere it occurs in the network.
Active Transportation to Transit Plan (AT3P)View Details
UTA is developing an Active Transportation to Transit Plan (“AT3P”). Public transit accessibility relies on active transportation accessibility. Active transportation includes human-powered mobility, such as biking, walking, or rolling. At the stop or station-level, every transit trip on UTA’s system at some point involves some form of active transportation to board, wait, travel to and from public transit locations, and more.
