Utah Transit aims to double ridership by 2020

Posted on October 29, 2013

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Transit Authority has a new official goal to double its current ridership by 2020, according to the The Salt Lake Tribune report.

Additional "Strategic Goals," which were given final approval by the UTA board this week, include cutting 25% off the overall time for customers’ trips and increasing service levels 50% by restoring some bus service, the report said.

Success depends on "full funding of the 2040 Unified Transportation Plan," which would require a 67% increase in its share of sales taxes, UTA officials said.
