Salt Lake City, UT— Mayor Jenny Wilson will put on her sneakers, walk to the UTA stop in her neighborhood and ride TRAX to work for free tomorrow, Friday March 1.
Today and Friday are Free Fare Days and are intended to encourage residents to give our UTA transportation system a try. The media is invited to join Mayor Wilson walking, boarding or riding TRAX.
A longtime supporter of public transportation, Mayor Wilson said, "Throughout the course of my career -- first as a Congressional staffer and now as Mayor -- I'm a strong supporter of expanding our public transportation system. With growth, congestion and air quality concerns, our TRAX and bus system is vital to our quality of life. I encourage county residents to also hop on a bus or train today and tomorrow."
Mayor Wilson Will board at the University Medical Center Station at the U of U at about 9:30 am, transfer and get off at the Central Pointe Station on 300 W. and 2100 S. She will finish her journey by walking to the Salt Lake County Center.
