Original plans called for a stop on 900 East near the BYU Creamery and Heritage Halls student housing. However, neighborhood opposition killed it and left a one-mile gap in the line at a key area with thousands of likely riders. In partnership with residents of the Wasatch, Foothills, and Oak Hills neighborhood, BikeWalk Provo has collected signatures of 212 residents of those neighborhoods who are in support of the bus stop–many opinions have changed since the BRT system has been put in place. Neither BYU, UTA, nor Provo City have made any indication that they will be building this stop–each is passing the buck (hence the Spiderman meme). We are now calling on Provo City Government to take the lead on partnering with UTA and BYU on building the 900 East UVX stop, ideally during the construction of the BYU Music Building to save taxpayer money. Please join us in a letter-writing campaign. Link in bio. → #bikewalkprovostories Kristi Jensen “Growing up, my family loved to go on walks. We would always take family walks. Even now, I will go on 2 hour walks with my dog Jasper. However, I was lucky enough to have my mom live with me the last few years of her life. Keeping with tradition, my mom and I would go on walks, accompanied by Jasper and me pushing mom in her wheelchair. Most often, we would walk around Lions Park. We would often walk to church as well. It was delightful even though we did come across many obstacles – lack of sidewalks, sidewalks ending abruptly, or curbs at the end of the sidewalk. We didn’t let this hold us back, however I was really excited when the neighborhood installed a sidewalk along 800 W. Then I was able to take my mom completely around the block safely!” Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
