UTA Offers Free Fare Days
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The public is offered free rides on all UTA transportation Thursday, Feb. 28th and Friday, March 1st.
“We’re trying to get more cars off the road, and more pollution out of the air,” said UTA spokesperson Carl Arky.
KSL TV’s Felicia Martinez talked to Arky on TRAX Thursday morning.
“We want to make life in general better,” Arky said.
“This year, we would especially like to encourage people to try riding the bus,” said Carlton Christensen, Chairman of the UTA Board of Trustees in a news release. “We have increased bus route coverage and frequency on many routes, are increasing the use of natural gas and electric vehicles in our fleet, and are working with Salt Lake City on improving bus service.”
“There isn’t a person in the county who doesn’t understand the importance of clean air and the critical role TRAX, FrontRunner, the S-Line and UTA’s buses play in tackling our air quality challenges. We appreciate the leadership of UTA and other partners for allowing our citizens to do their part and ride for free,” said Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson.
Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski tweeted that she’ll be taking advantage of the Free Fare Days.
