    Jordan, there is underground parking beneath Main Street, so it is not possible to have a bus depot there. However, UTA DOES have all you want and more. It is the Intermodal Hub where Commuter Rail, Light Rail, Amtrak, UTA buses, and Greyhound all come together.

    Does anyone remember the good ol' days in Salt Lake long before TRAX, when they had these really nice sheltered UTA bus stops on Main Street next to the Crossroads and ZCMI Center malls?

    From what I gather, they were pretty roomy, provided cool shade in the summer, had provided radiant heat in the winter, and they had these little TVs in them to display bus schedules and routes.

    Nowadays there's nay a sheltered bus stop in sight. If anyone's been to Denver before, you'll notice that they have a really cool underground bus depot for the RTD at 16th and Speer Boulevard Streets.

    Why doesn't UTA ever think to do the same thing?

    Go to the site and see - then judge....or better yet, why don't you register and vote. Then you would be part of the crowd. Sounds like you have an opinion, use it!

    Is the photovoltic cell'ed roof a source for electricity to charge cell phones and laptops?

    The concept of "wisdom of crowds" will transform the way every organization will work. The book, "Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide" says it is the most significant change affecting organizations in the last century." If you have been the one in control of the design, give up the reigns! It will engage your crowd who will design something creative, innovation - and better than you could!
