SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) is giving $40 worth of free bike safety gear and $20 gift cards for electronic bike lockers at transit stations for free as part of an ongoing effort to encourage people to bike to transit stations instead of driving, reported KSL.com.

The safety kit giveaways started July 10 and will continue "as long as supplies last," said UTA spokesman Remi Barron, and contain a safety vest, two LED bike lights and a bike map, according to the report.

Besides giving out free safety kits, UTA is also working on installing more bike racks on trains and near bus stops and FrontRunner stations, KSL reported.
