Its not the first time UTA and its mob run empire has gone after independent transportation services in any part of Utah.

UTA and its parent owner SLC has stopped every business they thought was a threat to keep people from using their buses and trains. UTA pays millions of dollars to legislators and their campaign funds to guarantee that they have total control and domain over all transportation services in Utah. Any company or limousine service deemed a threat to UTA will have its license yanked and the business destroyed in days.

When UTA was created and bought by SLC there was dozens of private transportation companies in SLC and Utah profiting well as a transportaion service. But individually each company did not have the capital and money to fight UTA and SLC with the financial backing of tax payers and SLC MOB.

I'd bet that UTA and SLC has already initiated and begun its plan of attack on this private service. We would not have taxi's in this state if it were not for the fact that SLC and UTA would them become a bigger monopoly, a concession to protect their license.
