Research Park Connect Ride Share Program
Research Park Connect is partnering with Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT)'s TravelWise Tracker program to offer a ride share program for the Research Park community. Sharing a ride to Research Park is a great way to contribute to reducing traffic and air pollution while saving money on gas and car use, enjoying a more relaxed ride to work, and even meeting colleagues from throughout the Research Park community. We'll match you with one of your colleagues who lives nearby and drives to Research Park on your schedule.
Research Park Connect Vanpool Program
Research Park Connect is partnering with Utah Transit Authority (UTA) to organize vanpools for the Research Park community. Vanpooling is a service provided by UTA to accommodate larger groups of people in shared vehicles. A vanpool usually consists of 7 to 15 passengers who split the cost evenly. Pricing is based upon the number of people in your vanpool and the distance traveled. Vanpool costs include fuel, maintenance, insurance and vehicle leasing. We'll match you with a group of your colleagues who live nearby and drive to Research Park on your schedule.
PLAN YOUR SMART TRAVEL TRIP
Research Park Connect is partnering with the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT)’s TravelWise program to offer tools for you to understand your range of options for any given trip. Use the TravelWise trip planner to make informed travel decisions. Enter your origin and destination and the tool provides options for driving, riding transit, bicycling, walking, and potential carpool partners for the trip. Find a carpool or bikepool to your workplace at Research Park or any other destination - or perhaps start your own carpool or bikepool. You can even get up-to-the-minute transit routes with all the information you need to get from point A to point B.
