Proposed Service Changes for August 2021

Ask questions. Provide comments. We want to hear from you.

Purpose

UTA is proposing several changes to service in August. A major change includes upgrading and replacing some Flex bus routes with permanent on-demand style service (learn more about our current UTA On Demand service). The proposed service changes provide multiple benefits:

  • Imrpove flexibility and access to increase mobility
  • Connect riders to transit where and when they need it
  • Replace routes with on-demand service or, in some cases, new Flex routes
  • Improve working conditions for operators
  • Set the stage for future service improvements outlined in UTA’s Five-Year Plan
