UTA Introduces Trolley Bus

The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) recently added the first trolley-replica bus to its fleet, operating on the Midtown Trolley route that serves FrontRunner commuter rail stations in the communities of Layton and Clearfield, restaurants, shopping, hotels, medical centers and other community resources. The service is free, sponsored by local businesses.

“As you can see, these trolley buses are one of a kind and are sure to become an icon in the city,” said UTA Interim Executive Director Steve Meyer. “I look forward to seeing them on this Midtown route and other routes in the future as we continue to partner together for the citizens of our communities.”

The vehicle, built by Gillig, features trolley-style decorate elements in red and gold, with wooden seats inside. A further three trolley buses will be added to the fleet in coming months. This project is supported with funds from Prop 1, a 2015 sales tax increase designed to fund public transportation, road, sidewalk and trail improvements.
