New trolley-type UTA bus unveiled on free Davis County route

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) UTA unveils a new historic-style trolley bus at the Layton Frontrunner station on Monday, Oct. 15, 2018, that will operate for free on Route 628 in Layton.

The Utah Transit Authority on Monday unveiled the first of four new trolley-type buses, costing $530,000 each, that will operate in Davis and Weber counties.

Two of the buses will serve on the free Midtown Trolley, Route 628. The free route — sponsored by local businesses and using tax increase money from the 2015 Proposition 1 — runs between the Layton and Clearfield FrontRunner stations and serves restaurants, shopping, hotels and medical centers. Another trolley bus will operate on Route 628 serving Lagoon. A fourth bus will eventually serve a yet-to-be determined route in downtown Ogden.
