I go to work at the University Hospital from Sugarhouse at 6:15 am on weekends and weekdays. I head home after 8pm. There is no reliable way to get to work in less than 45 minutes except using my car. I can jog that distance in about the same time. I have worked in Houston and NYC and been able to travel much farther in less time. There, I can rely on public transport heading my way every 15 minutes. Here, there is nothing, especially on Sundays, except maybe every 30 minutes at the most frequent. You might as well not have a public transportation system for all the good it does. No wonder ridership rates are poor. The service is useless to a large portion of residents.

What would you hope to see happen in Salt Lake City in the next 10 years?
Would like to see no more tent cities on random streets. Would like to see better understanding to neighborhoods who are experiencing multi family/high density development. Before permits are issued to build, that PARKING is addressed. More underground structures to house all of the vehicles and reduce the need to change the amount of lanes to allow street parking. The reduction of lanes in a neighborhood to allow for parking causes the traffic to build up and create more pollution. The development and housing is needed, BUT no more lane reductions, make the builders create their own solutions. All of the efforts to "clear the air" are for nothing when we force cars to sit a a light because we removed the 2nd lane.


What aspects of Salt Lake City are you most proud of?
Diversity on the rise.

AUTOMATIC CROSS WALK SIGNALS !!!!!! We shouldn't have to beg to cross the street. More raised crosswalks/mid block crossings and traffic calming measures across the city are essential. Prioritize pedestrians and other modes of transportation rather than cars. I too would like to see Main Street closed to cars tested out. Expanded night trax services and a push towards bus service expansion to Park City.

What would you hope to see happen in Salt Lake City in the next 10 years?
I would hope that Salt Lake continues to lead the state on issues such as sustainable transportation , economic growth and environmental protections. I would like to see SLC do more to increase the safety of pedestrians and other modes of transportation by following the master plans and hold mayors who don't follow the approved plans accountable. I would also hope that the city would continue to fight back against the state legislature's attempt to punish SLC and their residents.

Having moved back last year to SLC after living out of state for 10 years, there is significant worsening traffic and air quality. I often look out at the beautiful view of SLC and all I see is smug. I would hope that part of the investment on expanding public transit would be to to improved use of public transportation and decrease in pollution. So, it would be imperative for the city to invest in more fuel efficient busses and other modes of transportation.
