BOUNTIFUL — Revised bus routes through southern Davis County are in the works at the Utah Transit Authority, which is holding a public hearing Wednesday on the proposed changes.
UTA officials say routes have been adjusted to provide more service to the Woods Cross FrontRunner station and North Salt Lake residents, as well as to increase travel destinations.
If approved, the changes would affect bus routes 460, 461, 463 and 471 in the following ways:
Routes 460 and 463 would be combined into one route that would serve West Bountiful and Woods Cross along 800 West and North Salt Lake along Main Street.
Route 461 would be extended north and west to include service from the FrontRunner station along 500 South to Orchard Drive, as well as service to the area of 400 North, 900 East, 900 North and 1000 East.
Route 471 would change its name to 455 and have three morning and three evening trips from the Farmington FrontRunner station to the University of Utah along 400 East and Orchard Drive.
The new route 471 would provide two morning and two evening trips along 400 West in Centerville and 200 West in Bountiful.
Route 460 would become a bidirectional shuttle service between the Woods Cross FrontRunner station and the intersection of U.S. Highway 89 and Center Street in North Salt Lake. It would also provide service to the business park in North Salt Lake and the Foxboro subdivision.
Wednesday's public hearing will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Bountiful City Hall, 790 S. 100 East.
The changes would likely take effect in April.
UTA spokesman Chad Saley said UTA generally makes changes to its bus system three times a year, and it's continually evaluating routes. In 2007, UTA redesigned its entire bus system for Salt Lake County, and since then residents in Davis County have been asking for changes.
