This is a well kept secret. Pray tell... just where are these free transit zones? This article falls very short of serving the public interest.

The article was written as if UTA even had a choice...

Seems only right that those who travel further should cover the cost of those who don't travel as far.

Contrary to the very first comment the free fare zone does exist. This article did serve the public interest. A visit to the rideuta website will help you find the map of the free fare zone for both trax and the bus system within the schedule and maps section. I will be watching to see how this change influences my daily trip from Bountiful to Orem.

Ned, I agree with you for those that ride once or less a week. Yet, for those that ride 5 days a week save for UTA holiday's I believe that consistency and reliability should be taken well into consideration and not more heavily taxed. It is consistency not distance that matters most! And further, public transportation is not a taxi service and the moment they meter our trips and charge accordingly is the day it has crossed the line from public transportation to discounted taxi service with nowhere near the privacy.

@Jake thanks for the info. It would have been nice in the article. I wonder how many readers of the article also read your comment? After all, (to semi-quote Mark Twain) common knowledge is so uncommon.

Ah, for the want of a sarcasm font...
