Frisco Transit Center Master Plan

The Frisco Transit Center is Summit County's busiest transportation hub. With the help of input from community stakeholders and transit center users, we recently developed a master plan to guide future redevelopment of this transit center over the next 20 years.

The 6-acre property is utilized by many transportation services, including the county’s Summit Stage public transit system, regional bus services provided by Greyhound and CDOT's Bustang, four airport/resort shuttle services and Hertz car rental.

The master plan outlines existing and future transit center needs and uses,and it lays out a plan to redevelop the site in phases over the coming decades to best meet these needs. View the Frisco Transit Center Master Plan (pdf).

Public Input

Summit County hosted two events that allowed residents to learn about the master plan project and provide input. We also convened a stakeholder advisory group that met regularly throughout the master planning process. Thanks to all who attended! We received a lot of great input that helped guide the conceptual design. View a summary of the feedback (pdf).
