The Emerging Disruptors: Future of Transportation Study evaluated "disruptive" ideas to help identify innovative solutions to Park City's unique transportation challenges. Utilizing a Stakeholder Committee composed of ten community members and residents, the Study established the required next steps to help Park City prepare for future transportation innovations. The Final Report includes these next steps as well as summaries of Stakeholder Committee Workshops.
In 2021, Park City was awarded an $80,000 grant from the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), alongside a $50,000 local match, to study emerging technologies and disruptive ideas.
At the March 31, 2022, Council meeting, an initial “disruptive ideas list” was presented in response to growing community calls for innovation in our transportation systems and infrastructure.
In May 2023, Mayor Worel convened a Stakeholder Committee to assess and screen transformative transportation solutions. No project or concept was off-limits due to scope, cost, or previous analysis.
At the November 16, 2023 Council Meeting, the project team shared proposed next steps for each of the eight topics selected for further evaluation by the Stakeholder Committee. City Council's recommendations were incorporated into the Final Report.
On January 5, 2024, the Final Report was published.
