SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Transit Authority ridership has decreased due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the public transit system is now operating under a reduced schedule.

On Monday, UTA announced its bus routes are moving from 15-minute to 30-minute schedules. The Utah Valley Express (UVX) line is running every 15 minutes, the TRAX lines are running every 30 minutes and the FrontRunner lines are running every 60 minutes.

"Our decision to temporarily reduce service did not come easy. However, after evaluating the situation and closely monitoring our ridership we have decided to focus our resources on providing critical service for those who depend on us for their essential travel needs at this time," a post on UTA's website said.
