First Major Bus Rapid Transit System

The Langdon Group (TLG) is leading public involvement for the CMGC construction of the first major Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system in Utah. The BRT system will use specialized buses on roadways and dedicated lanes to move passengers to their destinations.

The Provo-Orem TRIP—which includes road, transit, and bike/pedestrian improvements—is a partnership between the Utah Transit Authority, the Utah Department of Transportation, the Mountainland Association of Governments, Utah County, Provo City, and Orem City.

The 10.5-mile BRT line is being constructed on major roadways in the Provo-Orem area and affects thousands of businesses, residents, and commuters. It will connect the FrontRunner commuter rail with major universities, employment centers, and malls.

TLG’s involvement includes public involvement strategy development and implementation, multi-agency coordination, conflict resolution, community advisory committees, a business promotion program, public presentations/events, web/media/social media, and traditional “boots on the ground” outreach.
