Broken UTA machines stress commuters
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

On Sept. 21 at 6:20 p.m, I was heading downtown from the 5200 South TRAX Station and tried to buy a ticket. One of the two ticket machines was inoperative.

Hours later on my return trip from Temple Square Station, two of three ticket machines were inoperative.

In the past I have experienced no ticket machines operable at stations.

This is very stressful for UTA patrons waiting in line for tickets while missing trains.

I request UTA fix current problems before asking for higher fares and taxes.
