UTA distributed 6,000 free weekly passes for use in July and early August, funded by its sponsor, the Salt Lake Board of Realtors. It says recipients used them for nearly 25,000 boardings — about four one-way trips per pass. The free RideClear passes were good for seven consecutive days of unlimited use on buses, the streetcar, TRAX trains and FrontRunner c...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

And the Cougars seem hell-bent on using that heightened speed and athleticism, throwing the ball deep countless times already in the 11-on-11 team scrimmages and 7-on-7 drills. “We have more balls going downfield today in the first practice maybe than I saw all spring,” coach Bronco Mendenhall said on Friday. “More weapons, m...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

That may change next year as the agency looks at charging fares based on how far passengers travel. That could make those with longer commutes pay more, and those taking short trips pay less. UTA says such a system could be fairer, and the agency is beginning a final study to look at how to implement the change without losing ridership or revenue. “We are still looking at i...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

So, what went wrong? About 2,000 of 6,000 steeply discounted passes have been purchased. But, as a spokesman for Mayor Ralph Becker pointed out, the program is only four months old — that’s equivalent to 500 passes sold per month. Hopes were high on a brisk day last October when municipal and transit officials gathered near a TRAX line for a big announcement — Salt Lake Cit...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

But sales of that $360 Hive Pass are underwhelming — about a third of what was expected. Just 2,008 sold as of Monday, instead of the hoped-for 6,000 or more. “We have experimented with the first-ever residential pass program in the United States.
