New Utah Rail Stations Offer Hope For Economic Development

New rail stations to open in 2007 will offer residents of towns north of Salt Lake City new economic options.

Cities along the route are hoping to take advantage of transit-orienteddevelopment opportunities. "People want to have freedom to move about like the old days. And that isn't going to happen unless we give them some alternatives, and definitely commuter rail is one of those choices."

"UTA's current projection for opening-day ridership is 6,000 per day, or an average of 103.4 passengers per train... The total project is estimated to cost about $500 million."
