For the first time ever, some TRAX customers are being charged for parking to catch a train but are being charged half the amount that Utah Transit Authority officials first proposed.
The UTA has started charging $1 a day or $15 for the current month to park in a garage at the Jordan Valley TRAX station at 3400 W. 8600 South. UTA earlier proposed to charge $2 a day or $35 a month.
But violators may not be paying anything for a short time. The UTA board's Stakeholder Committee was told on Wednesday that UTA police currently are issuing only warning tickets to people who do not pay at kiosks.
