Utah Transit Authority proposes FrontRunner fares, ticket price increases

The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) soon will begin hosting a series of public hearings to discuss proposed fares for a new commuter-rail service and proposed fare increases for existing trains.

The authority plans to charge a base fare of $2.50 for FrontRunner commuter-rail passengers traveling between two stations. UTA would charge another 50 cents for each additional station traveled, with a maximum fare of $5.50 for passengers traveling the full 44-mile route between Pleasant View and Salt Lake City. FrontRunner is scheduled to open in spring 2008.

UTA also proposes to raise fares for its light-rail and bus systems during the next three years. Fares would increase from $1.50 to $1.60 on July 1; to $1.75 on Jan. 1, 2008; and to $2 on Jan. 1, 2009.
