UTA increases bus, train service

BOUNTIFUL — The Utah Transit Authority will make changes to its offerings starting on Sunday, August 18, and Davis County routes will be affected.

UTA officials say the change is in response to public feedback.

“We’ve been listening to our customers about how they use the system, destinations they’d like added, and how they use bus and rail together,” UTA Chief Operating Officer Jerry Benson said in a press release from UTA. “As we complete the construction of the rail system, we’re turning our attention to improving service for our customers with shorter travel times and better transfer connections.”

Benson’s statements come after widespread criticism from city officials, such as those in Bountiful, alleging that UTA has focused on the wrong priorities when it built many rail projects ahead of schedule.

Changes are happening throughout the counties in which UTA operates, but Davis riders are most likely to be affected by train schedule changes and an additional southbound run on bus route 473, which goes to the University of Utah.

On the Frontrunner line, trains will run every hour on Saturdays rather than every 90 minutes and the schedule of departures will match the weekday one. From the Ogden Frontrunner station, Weber State University students will also have the option to take a fast bus to campus.

Other Davis routes that will see changes starting Sunday are 455, 456, and 470. For more information or to see the new routes, visit rideuta.com.

Fares will not change.
