South Davis County Meetings

MTA NYC Transit Access-A-Ride van 4246 in Kips...Image via WikipediaUTA is seeking public comment about possible changes in South Davis County. One thing problem with South Davis county is that it is so long and narrow it does not make economic sense to have much in the way of east-west bus routes.

However, this would be an ideal situation for Call N ride like I have discussed in the past. They could base call n' ride vans out of the Woods Cross Front Runner station and a couple of vans could service the area very easily and would be more effective than regular bus routes.
