February, 2019 Photo of the Month

Showcase Time!

For our February Showcase photo, we continue our journey across the US. Where to next you ask?

This month’s destination is Salt Lake City, UT & its surrounding region – served by the Utah Transit Authority (UTA). The UTA operates roughly 110 fixed bus routes [including bus rapid transit (BRT) service], several light rail lines, a modern streetcar line, & a commuter rail line. The agency also possesses over 400 transit buses (mostly Gilligs, but there are some Orion & New Flyer buses as well), roughly 164 paratransit & flex vans, roughly 114 light rail vehicles, 53 commuter rail cars, & 18 locomotives (as of 2017).

The Showcase photo for this month is bus # 13036, which is a 2013 40-foot Gillig Low Floor diesel with the BRT Plus styling. While most of UTA’s buses are diesel powered, there are some diesel-electric hybrid & compressed natural gas (CNG) powered buses in the fleet as well.

UTA services operate throughout the week, with many bus routes operating at least every 30 minutes during the day – with some popular routes operating every 15 minutes. Bus & rail services can vary depending on the type of route or service, destinations, & day of the week. Services may be reduced during major holidays.
