Posted on June 17, 2013

SALT LAKE CITY — Following $1.2 billion worth of new rail lines in the past year, the Utah Transit Authority’s (UTA) ridership has dropped — or remained flat, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

The number of UTA passengers in the first four months of this year — compared to the first four months of 2012 — decreased by 12,840, a 0.09% dip out of a total 14.7 million passengers, according to data provided to The Salt Lake Tribune. The numbers include not only riders on buses and trains, but also on paratransit and rideshare van service. For the full story, click here.
