UTA carries 50-millionth TRAX passenger, seeks feedback on proposed extension


The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has reached a ridership milestone. The agency recently carried the 50 millionth passenger on its seven-year-old light-rail system.

The passenger boarded the TRAX system sometime during the evening commute on Sept. 25, UTA said. The agency collects ridership data during a month, then processes the information the following month.

As TRAX ridership continues to grow, UTA is considering whether to expand the service. The agency recently held an open house to review and gather public input on a proposal to extend the light-rail line from Sandy City south to Draper.
