Understanding: About the District

Mission and Purpose

The Uintah Transportation Special Service District was organized as a transportation agency to facilitate and develop the transportation system in the Uintah County boundaries, on a cost basis, fairly priced and procured, and in safe, environmentally sensitive manner.

The District develops and maintains positive and effective relationships with its constituents, governments and regulatory entities in acquiring and protecting transportation services. The District is cooperatively developing projects with other entities to meet the transportation needs of the District's service area.

The District leads in the development of transportation policy, the dissemination of transportation related information, the acquisition of technology, and the promotion of wise and safe transportation use.
