UTA could service Weber County routes with smaller buses

I hope the advertising on the sides of Utah Transit Authority buses is profitable because hauling passengers sure isn't.

It’s not hard to see these fuel-sucking, polluting buses are roaming around Weber County all day and night with two or three passengers at any given time — or just plain empty. I understand UTA employees are very well paid, but if the taxpayers quit throwing them a bone it would be a different story.

These routes could easily be serviced by much smaller, more efficient shuttle-type vehicles.

The buses are out there driving around. Take a look for yourself.
