UTA unveils improved bus shelters and signs funded by Salt Lake City

After the Utah Transit Authority recently increased the frequency and service hours on key bus routes — thanks to a tax hike by Salt Lake City — officials on Monday unveiled additional steps to make service more accessible to the disabled, and more comfortable for all.

City and UTA leaders showed off new bus stop shelters that are wheelchair accessible, and new larger signs that can be seen from greater distances and contain more information including schedule data. They are on eight-sided poles that allow the visually impaired to confirm by touch that they are at a bus stop.
