The Utah Transit Authority will focus on providing better service on a budget while continuing efforts to restore public trust in 2017, according to president and CEO Jerry Benson.
If a public transit service between downtown Ogden, Weber State University and McKay-Dee Hospital ever becomes a reality, the Utah Transit Authority says it won't be hurting for riders.
As a result, the Utah Transit Authority is proposing increasing the frequency of trips up and down Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons, improved midday service and a new route between Davis County and Snowbasin resort.
The UTA Board of Trustees voted unanimously today to appoint Jerry Benson as UTA president & CEO. After his appointment, Benson said he was honored and humbled to accept the position.
After a year as interim leader, Jerry Benson is expected to be appointed the next president and chief executive officer of UTA by the transit authority board of trustees Wednesday.
