UTA defector

I have noticed lately that many Utah Transit Authority buses now run on natural gas. Good for us.

With natural gas so plentiful and cheap, it seems that UTA should remove the fuel surcharge it placed on the price of rides. And then if it did not implement the next fare increase, its ridership could afford to still ride on UTA.

The most recent increase put me back into my car because it was not only faster but cheaper to get to work.
