We thought it might be fun to get some friends and join in the New Years Eve festivities downtown, but low and behold here is the service UTA was offering that night: "New Year's Eve, Tuesday, Dec. 31 — Regular weekday service on Bus, TRAX and FrontRunner," which means we would have had to leave well before the stroke of midnight to get home.

Upon further investigation, we learned that the TRAX lines did run after midnight; however, the 30,000 parking places had been promoted more heavily and there are no buses running from the various TRAX stops. So, a little to a lot of driving in individual cars was still necessary for most of the late-night revelers.

Among my wishes for 2014 is that it brings more transit service to accommodate the growing valley population and that our citizens support it by riding as much as possible to help keep our air clean. Cleaner breaths in 2014!
