Connect SLC – Transportation Master Plan

PROJECT UPDATE (updated 11/1/2021) – We are starting public engagement for Connect SLC, the City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP)! Take the survey below.

What is Connect SLC?

In 2021, the Salt Lake City Transportation Division is launching Connect SLC, an extensive process to update our last Transportation Master Plan from 1996. Like other Salt Lake City Master Plans, Connect SLC will result in a Transportation Master Plan (TMP) that outlines high-level transportation policy to be applied city-wide. We recognize that transportation has a direct impact on equity and quality of life, ranging from housing, to economic development, to air quality, and more.

Connect SLC will consider our sidewalks and streets holistically. We seek to use our streets not just as a means for person and vehicle mobility, but also as our shared living space. To accomplish this, we want to work with the community to learn about past and current transportation barriers and opportunities to improve connections and the streetscape in the City. We seek to understand how our diverse residents travel to places like work and the grocery store, what they like and don’t like about the streets they use, and what our system of streets and roadways could and should be.

We selected members for a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) in summer of 2021. The feedback of CAC members is helping shape Connect SLC.

What is the purpose of a Master Plan and why is it important?

Master Plans are long-term policy documents that define big goals and needs as well as ways to achieve them. They also guide City staff on how to implement smaller-scale projects and programs. Salt Lake City has adopted many transportation-focused Master Plans in recent years, including the 2017 Transit Master Plan and the 2015 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.


We want to hear from you! Take our survey to share what YOU think about transportation in SLC!

What is most important to you when it comes to daily transportation needs?
How should Salt Lake City improve the transportation network to better serve you?
How can Salt Lake City government and our partners better improve transportation for you?

Your comments will help shape Salt Lake City into a place where it is easy to walk, bike, take transit, or scoot to your destinations.

Plus, for completing this survey, you can enter an opportunity drawing to receive a one-time mobility benefit! Thanks to our community partners for offering the following benefits:
