Big Sky Transportation District
Started: July, 2022 End Date: June, 2024 Project ID #4W9966 Status: Ongoing
To provide staff to act as the transit systems “Coordinator” and assist the Big Sky Transportation District in managing its public transportation system. WTI had a key role in creating the Skyline system and has played a role in the on-going operations of the system ever since. This project will allow for continued support of the public transit system in the Big Sky area.
In 2004, WTI proposed and assisted in the completion of ‘Transit Development Plan’ (TDP) which was the first step in creating a year-round Big Sky area transit system. WTI worked with the District to complete a Federal Transit Administration Section 5311 application to permit the District to start year-round transit service in Big Sky, Montana. The application was accepted, and on December 1, 2006 the new “Skyline” transit system began providing year-round public transportation services within Big Sky. As “Coordinator” WTI will provide guidance to the District in its business operations, assistance in identifying and locating funding and in maximizing public transportation services for the District as it begins its 18th year of operations as “Skyline,” the Skyline transit system.
