Imagine riding in a clean-air electric bus – aided by dedicated bus lanes along the way – between Ogden FrontRunner Station, Lindquist Field, the Junction, Downtown Ogden, 25th Street, Weber State University, and McKay Dee Hospital.
Bus Rapid Transit or BRT combines the capacity and speed of light rail with the lower cost construction of an integrated bus system. Once complete, Ogden BRT(formerly route 603) will provide riders a clean-air ride in an electric bus from the Ogden FrontRunner Station, through downtown, along dedicated bus lanes in the center of the road on Harrison Boulevard and through the Weber State University campus, and to McKay-Dee Hospital. When operational, riders will be able to catch the bus every 10-15 minutes on weekdays and 15-30 minutes on weekends. The project will benefit the community by reducing vehicle trips, supporting the economy and providing transportation choices.
Utah Transit Authority, Jacobs Engineering, AECOM, WCEC, and Stacy and Witbeck have partnered to design and construct the Ogden BRT line over the next three years. Project segments will be constructed simultaneously in multiple locations to ensure project completion in a timely manner.
