It helps me get to work at the University of Utah.


How can UTA improve your transit-riding experience? (Or, if you don’t ride, what could UTA do to make it more appealing to ride?)
Please add one more morning schedule for the 313. Currently the last schedule gets an individual up to the U around 8am. It would be nice to have one that arrives around 9am.


If you ride, approximately where do you get on the bus in the mornings?
I haven't ridden this one yet because it would get me to work too early but I would get on the bus at 6600 South 900 East stop.


And approximately where you get on the bus in the afternoons/evenings?
501/502 Chipeta Way. If I miss the 313 I take the 228 to transfer to other routes.

The stop is right by my building in research park.


How can UTA improve your transit-riding experience? (Or, if you don’t ride, what could UTA do to make it more appealing to ride?)
The bus is Always late going back to central, which in the middle of the day means you are Running when you get to central or you miss frontrunner by 2 minutes and have to wait an hour. It also is really frustrating how infrequently the bus comes, especially in the middle of the day. It is the only bus that goes between our building at salt lake central. This means if for some reason you miss it, you often times have to wait a whole hour or walk a mile to get to the red line. I understand that as a public transit system you can’t cater to everyone’s needs but the building that I get on at serves the OT, PT, dental, medical AND rec therapy students (many of whom used to take the bus regularly but have stopped because of the before mentioned concerns).


If you ride, approximately where do you get on the bus in the mornings?
Salt lake central


And approximately where you get on the bus in the afternoons/evenings?
520 Wakara

Which routes do you ride the most? (Check all that apply.)
223, Other - 21


How often do you use routes 223, 228, 313, or 354?
A few times per month


What do you like about the current service?
The stops are easy walking distance from my house. Takes minutes to get to the U. My options there are to go to an event on campus or take trax downtown.


How can UTA improve your transit-riding experience? (Or, if you don’t ride, what could UTA do to make it more appealing to ride?)
Shorter intervals between buses. Run until midnight, at least. I'd ride a lot more if those two factors were improved. Especially running late at night. I frequently go out to late dinners, shows.


If you ride, approximately where do you get on the bus in the mornings?
The corner of Wilson Ave and 17th East for the 223. And the corner of 2100 South and 18th east for the 21 bus.


And approximately where you get on the bus in the afternoons/evenings?
Same. But 223 is very limited.

We need to close the "trax looop" and bring the line from the Sugar House trolley down 2100 south and up Foothill.

Which routes do you ride the most? (Check all that apply.)
228


How often do you use routes 223, 228, 313, or 354?
5+ times per week


What do you like about the current service?
There is a stop a short distance from my home and one right where I work. I don't have to wait too long thanks to the bus tracking service.


How can UTA improve your transit-riding experience? (Or, if you don’t ride, what could UTA do to make it more appealing to ride?)
WiFi on regular buses would be nice.


If you ride, approximately where do you get on the bus in the mornings?

Is there anything else you’d like to share regarding service between the east bench of the Salt Lake Valley and the University of Utah?
The benches added to stops along Rte 228 in Holladay a few years back have been very nice. It would be helpful to have more buses in the morning. Some morning routes are so full that arrival times are delayed. I recommend informational campaigns for services such as route deviation and where passes may be purchased and schedules obtained.

Name not shown inside Sandy November 16, 2017, 6:52 AM

Which routes do you ride the most? (Check all that apply.)
354, Other - 220


How often do you use routes 223, 228, 313, or 354?
5+ times per week


What do you like about the current service?
I like that the 354 and 220 are close to my home and that they both stop directly at the University of Utah and you can connect to trax red line if you need to. Friendly bus drivers. Clean buses (on the routes I take) and the mercy of heat during winter.


How can UTA improve your transit-riding experience? (Or, if you don’t ride, what could UTA do to make it more appealing to ride?)
What I think will improve the service (specific to route 354) is for the route to be accessible online (it doesn’t show the afternoon stops the 354 makes) and that’s bad because I have to memorize when the 354 is scheduled to come in the afternoon. Another improvement would have to be communication between the UTA drivers. I asked a UTA driver the afternoon schedule for 354 and they had no idea...

Have bus drivers be consistent in their training. Some will drop at every stop, others have memorized who typically will be there and go at their own pace.

Give the 354 more frequency and have it be consistent.

I sometimes will have the option to ride the 354 or 220 in the afternoon when I get off work. They both arrive at exactly the same time at the 9400 S Park and ride. I thought 354 was supposed to be a fast bus? I honestly just take whichever bus comes first or if I want the 354 “scenic route” when I go home.

Have the red line match up with the evening 220. If you take the red line at night, and stop at stadium, the 220 leaves at the stop by the law school building. You are then stranded for 30 minutes, not ideal.


If you ride, approximately where do you get on the bus in the mornings?
9400 S Park and Ride


And approximately where you get on the bus in the afternoons/evenings?
South Campus, University of Utah


If service were to be taken out of your neighborhood, would you be willing to drive to a park-and-ride to access more frequent service?

Is there anything else you’d like to share regarding service between the east bench of the Salt Lake Valley and the University of Utah?
Taking public transportation as a young 24 year old is important to me. I have anxiety when it comes to driving and UTA has gotten me to and from the U as a college student and now as a University employee for 6 years. I want to continue taking the bus and if the east bench got better connection to the U, that would be great and I’m sure it will help out a lot of people. I stopped taking the Blue Line trax when I left my previous position and have instead chosen UTA bus. The 354 and 220 route, compared to the blue line, is so much cleaner, friendlier, and the customers are mostly college students/U employees.

Either in front of FedEx/Kinko's on University Street or just west of stadium at the University, if I'm not taking Trax

Ms. Sabre Kittykatasia outside UTA Cities November 15, 2017, 8:10 AM

When will you provide a connection to the residence of Southern Utah we feel like we aren't part of the state excluded from rapid transit (frontrunner) that would greatly benefit both the south and the north. It would be so great to be able to connect. We have so much to offer Brian Head, Shakespearean festival, SUU, The new Temple, that's just a few things in Cedar City there is so much more in between each city. So many great benefits to enjoy. When can this happen? Very soon I'm hoping! :flushed::pray:
Looking forward to your positive reply.

Which routes do you ride the most? (Check all that apply.)
223, Other - Red line, 220,17


How often do you use routes 223, 228, 313, or 354?
5+ times per week


What do you like about the current service?
223 is convenient, near home, and connects to Red line at the U to go downtown.
Also doctors offices at the other end in Cottonwood.


How can UTA improve your transit-riding experience? (Or, if you don’t ride, what could UTA do to make it more appealing to ride?)
- Make the 223 run hourly instead of every 2 hours.
- Transferring from 223 to Red line southbound at Stadium in the morning used to be a short wait. Now it arrives just after the southbound train leaves, so it is usually a 12-15 minute wait for the train. I preferred the shorter wait.
- The 228 westbound to downtown should be another time option, but strangely, it leaves at the same time as the Red line. Not sure why we have 2 ways down the hill that leave at the same time.
- Nighttime southbound 220 shouldn't leave Stadium until the synced Red lines arrive. If the bus leaves before the train arrives you are stranded for 30 minutes.
- More late night service (extend 220, 21, and 17?)
- More enforcement of smoking, vaping, and skateboarding rules.


If you ride, approximately where do you get on the bus in the mornings?
17th and 17th


And approximately where you get on the bus in the afternoons/evenings?
Stadium station or University South Campus

Which routes do you ride the most? (Check all that apply.)
313


How often do you use routes 223, 228, 313, or 354?
5+ times per week


What do you like about the current service?
I can take one bus from home to work and vice versa (easy walking distance from home to the bus stop and from stop to work, drops me off close to work) - I don't have to transfer to other bus or campus shuttle. This makes it very easy to take the bus when I work 'regular' hours.


How can UTA improve your transit-riding experience? (Or, if you don’t ride, what could UTA do to make it more appealing to ride?)
Sometimes the fast bus feels like an afterthought to UTA. There are different drivers every day who don't always know the route and go the wrong way or try to stop at every stop, which defeats the purpose of a fast bus. Since the U is one of UTA's biggest customers, these routes should be bigger priorities. There should also be more times of the fast buses because if you work or go to school at times other than 7-8 am or 4-5 pm, you can't take the bus without it being a huge ordeal.


If you ride, approximately where do you get on the bus in the mornings?
Sandy library stop


And approximately where you get on the bus in the afternoons/evenings?
Research park

Please keep the 313! More time options for Health Sciences workers or students would be great additions.
