While not planning to implement its mysterious bus changes yet because of issues downtown, it does plan to cut some routes in the spring shake up.
So far UTA has not said what routes it plans to cut, only that notices will be posted on the buses system and TRAX. Most of the time they never publish any of the proposed changes on the website or where the meetings to talk about the cuts will be. Last year when they discontinued the 12 line, there never was any notice published in the news section of their website.
To top off it all off, not only are they raising fares and cutting service, the fuel surcharge that every one will pay will not go in effect on Paratransit Service despite the fact that it is the most costly UTA service that is more taxi service than transit service.
Once again this clearly shows that UTA doesn't have a clue and doesn't truly care about attracting choice customers to the transit system.
