Utah's new fares among highest in U.S.

Of 169 U.S. transit agencies that participated in a 2012 American Public Transportation Association survey, only five cities will have higher base fares for buses than UTA’s $2.50 fare — New York City; San Francisco; Nashville; Sugar Land, Texas; and Eden Prairie, Minn. — with another four systems matching it.

    RTD (Denver) is pretty close with a standard one-way bus fare of $2.25 and a light rail fare ranging between $2.25 and $5.00 each way.

    Worth it - Salt Lake City has one of the best transit systems in the country, especially because of its helpful staff. For information, the basic London bus fare is 50% more than the Salt Lake City fare, and the basic tube fare about twice that.
