History of Environmental Responsibility & Sustainability

As a known green meeting destination, Park City has a long history of environmental responsibility and sustainability:

  • Our goals are North America’s most ambitious: to be net-zero carbon and run on 100% renewable energy by 2030 community-wide and by 2022 for municipal operations.
  • Nearly 10,000 acres of protected open space
  • Our transit system is free, with the nation’s first all-electric commuter route with our Electric Xpress buses. We currently run 13 e-buses year-round, and the rest of our buses run on a biodiesel blend.
  • Summit County and Park City launched Summit Bike Share in 2017 which offers bicycles to their registered users. It’s easy, fun and comfortable plus all of the bikes have electric-assist or Pedelec bikes which act like a regular bike and don’t have any complicated gears or buttons to learn.
