Utah Edges Closer to First BRT System

Officials in Utah have approved plans for a bus rapid transit system between Provo and Orem, which will be the state's first BRT system.

The Mountainland Association of Governments board of directors approved the system, which is estimated to carry between 13,000 and 17,000 passengers per day.

"A BRT line between Orem and Provo has been in MAG's long-term plans for quite some time, Eccles said. The approved plans call for the bus rapid transit line to run from an intermodal center west of Utah Valley University, around BYU to downtown Provo and down to the Novell campus in south Provo."

Inaccurate Title

The title given to this particular article is inaccurate. The Utah Transit Authority has a BRT route that runs from South Salt Lake City (3500 South TRAX Station) to Magna. This BRT route has been in operation for over a year now.

I would suggest that the title be altered so that it doesn’t mislead as it is presently doing.
