The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has been named an Outstanding Public Transportation System of 2014 by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA). The award recognizes transit agencies in the United States and Canada that have demonstrated efficiency and effectiveness, and made "exceptional contributions to the public transportation industry," according to a press release. The awards are given each year based on system size; UTA won the award in the category for systems providing 20 million or more passengers trips annually. In 2013, UTA posted record ridership of more than 44 million boardings. The agency also opened the S-Line, a streetcar system connecting Salt Lake City's Sugar House neighborhood with South Salt Lake, and completed its FrontLines 2015 program under budget and two years ahead of schedule after opening the TRAX light-rail lines to Draper and Salt Lake International Airport. "With aggressive and successful rail expansion, it's not surprising that UTA saw record-breaking ridership growth in 2013," said APTA President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Melaniphy. "As a leader in innovation, both in operations and sustainability, UTA is a role model for other public transit agencies."
