Utah Transit on-time performance takes jump

Posted on May 12, 2015

SALT LAKE CITY — Last year, for the first time ever, the on-time rate for the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) buses was better than 90% even though UTA has adopted tougher definitions for being "on time," The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

The on-time bus rate just eight years ago was 62%, according to the report. TRAX light-rail trains on-time rate that was 92%, with FrontRunner commuter trains hitting 94.6%.

The agency put GPS systems on all buses and trains to track and report their locations in real time. The information is stored to evaluate performance. UTA also loads schedules into computers showing when a bus or train should be at each stop, and compares that to onboard clocks and actual location of buses. For the full story, click here.
