UTA Up and Running in Eagle Mtn.

"For the tens of thousands living in Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs, there's finally a new way to get to Salt Lake for work. A new express bus route is rolling.

"That's good, probably a good idea. If you work uptown or something, that's probably the way to go," one man told us.

Some residents are saying anything to reduce traffic, and that will allow them to leave the car at home, is a good thing and needed; others not so happy about the price to ride.

UTA says the cost of a one-way express bus fare is $4.50 and a monthly unlimited express bus pass is $162.00. "I don't think it's worth it for the price they're charging," another man said.

Right now, there are only two buses that make the trip, but several residents say it's a start. They hope to see more buses added as more people jump aboard."
