UTAH (ABC4 News) Sunday marks one of the largest change days in UTA history, according to a press release issued by the Utah Transit Authority.

“The emphasis for Sunday’s Change Day is on increasing and improving bus service for riders throughout the six counties UTA serve, as stated in the release. “The public will see new routes, revised routes (some of which are being extended), increased frequency and expanded service hours as well as more weekend service.”

UTA said the overriding goal for UTA is to provide greater access to public transportation and say the changes will include greater frequency, expanded hours and more weekend service on Routes 2, 9 and 21 in Salt Lake City.
