UTAH COUNTY (News4Utah)- News4Utah got a sneak peek of a new bus route coming to Utah County.

The Provo-Orem Bus Rapid Transit route will provide a direct line between Utah Valley University and Brigham Young University.

BRT works just like TRAX, with stations, frequent service every five to ten minutes, and pre-paid ticketing, except it runs on a road instead of a rail.

The project is a partnership between the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), Utah Transit Authority (UTA), Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG), Provo, Orem and Utah County.

The BRT line is set to be operation in August.
