This letter would mean a lot more if street locations were mentioned. I have a hard time believing that your 30 min commute went to 1.5 hours and it is only a 20 min drive time. If the original writer could clarify what routes were cut that would be great.

Here's the details:
1st Commute: Caught route 356 at 3100 S 5600 W at 7:00 am arrived at 100 S State St at 7:30 am. (I begin work at 8 am)
2nd commute: Caught route 513 at 2700 S 5600 W at 6:45 transfer to route 220 at Salt Lake Central at 7:30 arrived at work at 7:45.
Now: Catch route F556 at 2700 S 5600 W at 6:56 transfer to route 35M at 3500 S 5600 W at 7:11, transfer to Green Trax Line at 7:33 arrive at work at 8:05 am.
All the commuters on this route has the same complaints at me. Route 356 was packed, route 513 was 20% filled, now it is a handful of commuters on the bus.

Sorry about the typo on the current commute, it should read:
Catch route F556 at 2700 S 5600 W at 6:46 transfer to route 35M at 3500 S 5600 W at 7:11, transfer to Green Trax Line at 7:33 arrive at work at 8:05 am.
