The study will look at two possible routes mainly along either 25th Street or 30th Street to connect the Ogden Intermodal Hub with Weber State and the hospital.
It also will examine two alternative transit technologies for that route, either a streetcar or BRT sort of a TRAX on rubber wheels, where buses have dedicated traffic lanes and the ability to change traffic signals in their favor. Like streetcars, bus rapid transit sells tickets from vending machines at stations for quicker loading.
Agreements say the study could cost up to $845,410. It will be funded by seven different parties:
UTA • $442,705
Weber County Council of Governments • $252,705
Weber State • $100,000
McKay-Dee Hospital • $20,000
Utah Department of Transportation • $50,000
Ogden City, Wasatch Front Regional Council • Would contribute in-kind resources for the study.
