Transit can be a variety of things: riding the bus, taking TRAX or multi-tasking on the FrontRunner train. But did you know that transit in Salt Lake City also includes UTA On Demand, a ride service similar to Uber or Lyft? UTA On Demand is available in the City’s Westside neighborhoods.
All new users currently get the first 10 rides FREE! But this offer ends May 1st, so make sure to try it out soon.
Salt Lake City Transportation Planner Kyle Cook was interviewed about the upcoming 200 South reconstruction project, funded by the Funding Our Future bond.
