What are some opportunities and barriers for transit-oriented development?
Outcomes of the corridor workshop, project advisory committee meetings and review of existing conditions have helped identify some key observations that can influence transit-oriented neighborhoods along Ogden’s bus rapid transit corridor. There are several documents that you can download and review from the Baseline Analysis in the project library, including:

A Community Vision for Ogden’s BRT Corridor
Ogden Onboard builds on the Ogden/Weber State University Transit Study, helping to identify how future bus rapid transit (BRT) and adjacent areas will grow and change into the future. Beginning in Fall 2017 and continuing through Winter 2018/19, the study process will examine the BRT Corridor (see map below) for opportunities to create more connected and convenient neighborhoods, that includes:
- Preserving a mix of equitable housing;
- Enhancing access to essential services;
- Creating well-designed and welcoming stops and station areas; and
- Providing improved active transportation connections and greater connectivity to the regional transit system.
