Utah Transit Authority obtains FTA grant for Orem intermodal center

The Federal Transit Administration recently awarded a $250,000 grant to the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) for the design and engineering of an intermodal transit center in Orem. The funds are part of a discretionary grant awarded to UTA to develop transit centers along the Wasatch Front.

The authority will use proceeds to advance design work on the $10 million Orem Intermodal Center, which UTA plans to build prior to opening the FrontRunner South commuter-rail line between Provo and Salt Lake City in 2012 or 2013. The transit center will serve FrontRunner, UTA buses and a proposed bus rapid transit line between Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University and downtown Provo.

The center will feature a FrontRunner station and 14 bus bays, as well as shelters, benches, bike facilities, ticket vending machines and 400 parking stalls.
