Welcome to
the Provo-Orem Bus Rapid Transit Project

Outreach materials can be found below.


Project Overview

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Utah Transit Authority (UTA), and the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) in conjunction with Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG), are designing a new bus rapid transit (BRT) system through the cities of Provo and Orem in Utah County.  The proposed project will include:

  • Providing BRT service between the Orem Intermodal Center, UVU, BYU and the Provo Intermodal Center.
  • Capacity improvements to intersections on University Parkway.
  • Approximately 51% of the BRT route will include exclusive bus only lanes.
  • 17 stations with upgraded features such as real-time next bus information, shelters with seating and the ability to pay for fairs at stations.
  • More reliable bus service with 5 minute frequency during peak hours.

UTA and UDOT are currently working together on the preliminary design of the project. This includes refinement of preferred EA alignment. Construction is dependent of funding.

Stakeholder Working Group

To assist in the preliminary engineering process, the project team has formed three stakeholder working groups. The working groups are a cross-section of the larger community with many different interests being represented. Each member of the group was selected based on his or her role in the community. Group members assists the project team by listening to ideas and concepts and providing input. The project team uses the input to assist in the determination of project elements. The project team, however, is ultimately responsible for determining the elements that are included in the project.
