Salt Lake City residents, business owners and commuters are invited to help shape the city's transit future by participating in the development of the first Salt Lake City Transit Master Plan.

The last in a series of summer outreach events will be held Wednesday from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. at Harmons City Creek, 135 E. 100 South, on the cafe Level mezzanine.

Attendees will hear what the project team has learned so far in the process and discuss opportunities for improvements in the transit system. They will be invited to offer input about what is and is not working for those who use mass transit in Salt Lake City.

The Transit Master Plan will be a guiding document for the city to improve public-transportation services and amenities citywide, including buses and trains, transit-related programs and passenger amenities.

Once finalized, the Transit Master Plan will help the city and Utah Transit Authority (UTA) set priorities for the next 20 years, guide decisions about the timing and location of investments and foster increased use of public transportation citywide.

Ongoing opportunities for public participation can be found online on Open City Hall — where participants can get a day pass for GreenBike, as well as on the project's website at slcrides.org.
