Why do SLC residents get this handout? Who is paying for it? Is it going to be extended to other groups? How long with this be available for SLC residents?

Oh, please!

To UTA: If you want the rest of us to use public transportation to and around SLC, you ought to extend this pricing to everyone...at least ALL Utah residents. I visit my children often in Utah County and would love to take extended family members into the "city" on a regular basis. However, it's too expensive at the per ticket price for me. I suspect I'm not alone in this.

The discount is only available to Salt Lake City residents because the City is putting up a big chunk of its own tax money to pay UTA for the discounted passes. If you live outside the City and want in on this deal you need to talk to your own local government representatives and have them strike the same deal with UTA.

Oh, please!

Thanks, Dutchman, for the explanation. Most appreciated. Too bad DNews didn't include that in the article.
