I mentioned in my post Time to Split Up UTA? that it was time to look at splitting up the UTA because it controls too much area and UTA is disconnected from its riders in Salt Lake County much less in the other counties that it services.

It looks like Utah County is looking at the possibility of having its own bus system and more importantly are starting to look at light rail. While commuter rail would still serve a purpose, light rail is going to do more to help people traveling within Utah County especially better than a BRT scheme.

Also to see how bad local bus service currently is, here is comments from one blogger on his attempts to get from home to work in Utah County: Utah County exploring transit options

Pretty much goes with what I have been saying about UTA being too disconnected from its system.
