Pay More to Help Disabled 

Pin It

Due to necessary state budget cuts, UTA is increasing its one-way Flextrans fares to $4 and will only pick up and drop off disabled individuals who live within three-quarters of a mile of a fixed bus route and are going to a location within three-quarters of a mile of a fixed bus route starting July 1.

This prices many out of their muchneeded transportation and excludes many more from service. Most disabled individuals rely on UTA to get them to medical treatment, jobs and other destinations.

The solution: Most of us who ride the fixed system would want to help out our independent disabled citizens and pay an extra 20 cents for our fare. That is such an easy solution, and it may even help fund fixed-route bus service for the south end of the valley.

Support independence for the disabled!
