Utah Transit Opens First Segment of Ogden Express BRT

Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has celebrated the opening of the first section of the Ogden Express Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service in Utah, USA.

The 120 million USD bus rapid transit project aims to combine the capacity and speed of light rail with the low-cost of a bus route.

Once complete, the BRT service will run from the Ogden FrontRunner Station, through downtown Ogden, along dedicated bus lanes on Harrison Boulevard and through the Weber State University campus to McKay-Dee Hospital.

Ogden BRT
The Wildcat Shuttle is the first segment of the Ogden Express Bus Rapid Transit line, known as OGX

Named the Wildcat Shuttle, the first section is opening in time for the start of the semester at Weber State University.

On this section of the route, electric buses will provide an efficient and more environmental means of transport across the Ogden campus.

“The Wildcat Shuttle is an important first step toward a larger goal. Utah Transit Authority is excited to see the OGX Wildcat Shuttle opening fall semester. We are at the halfway point on this project, and the entire OGX line will open late 2023.”

The shuttles will operate every 10 minutes from 6:30am to 8:30pm Monday-Friday and are free to ride. They will initially serve three stops at the Val A. Browning Center for the Performing Arts, the Dee Events Center and Wildcat Village.

The BRT project is being delivered by Utah Transit Authority, Jacobs Engineering, AECOM, WCEC, and Stacy and Witbeck.
