Utah receives full funding for commuter rail project

Posted on June 19, 2006

The Utah Transit Authority received $489 million in federal funding for its FrontRunner commuter rail line. The money will be used to build the new 44-mile commuter rail line between Weber County and Salt Lake City. It is expected to carry almost 12,000 weekday passengers taking nearly 6,000 cars off the roads every day, said U.S. Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta during a visit to the Farmington Station construction site. The line's downtown terminal will provide commuter rail passengers a direct connection for commuter rail, light rail and passenger rail with UTA buses and Greyhound intercity bus service. Feeder buses will provide transportation from the terminal to local business and residential areas. The Full Funding Grant Agreement will be allocated over a seven-year period from 2006 through 2012.
