FrontRunner Train Eases Travel Between Salt Lake And Ogden

It looks like Utah's new FrontRunner commuter rail service will be popular, and will help ease travel between Ogden and Salt Lake City.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

"UTA is expecting about 6,000 daily riders once people start paying fares on Thursday. But the initial rush of riders has been encouraging, Bohnsack-Ware said.

UTA continues to work out kinks with FrontRunner's free wireless Internet access, which has been spotty in the first days. The system should be fully functional within a week, Bohnsack-Ware said."

The Deseret Morning News reports:

Utah Transit Authority officials are hailing today as a day of success for FrontRunner, the just-opened commuter rail line between Ogden and Salt Lake City.

"It's better than expected today," Bohnsack-Ware said.
