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).

  • Improve circulation and enhance safety for all modes of travel: buses,cars, bicycles and pedestrians.
  • Better connect and integrate the transit center with the surroundings.
  • Improve visibility and wayfinding signage.

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).
