VINEYARD, Utah (AP) -- This small Utah County community could provide a solution to the region's clogged roads and ease the high cost of car-dependent commuting.

Vineyard could be home to the next regioanal intermodal trasnportation hub, with light rail, commuter rail and bus routes all in one place.

The Utah Transit Authority is discussing the idea with city leaders.

Just west of Orem, Vineyard is only home to 150 residents. But growth projections show the city on the verge of exploding and city leaders say they're trying to plan for the future.

Included in the discussion is transit-oriented development, or a walkable community with easy access to public transit systems.
