“Free Fare Friday” on Dec. 22 Highlights Opportunity to Improve Wintertime Air Quality

Complimentary UTA Rides Throughout Wasatch Front on Dec. 22

No fares will be charged for rides on the Wasatch Front’s transit network Friday, Dec. 22 – one of the biggest shopping days of the holiday season – thanks to an innovative partnership to raise awareness about the opportunity to improve wintertime air quality by boosting transit ridership.
The Salt Lake City Council, Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams and Utah Transit Authority announced Tuesday they are teaming up to sponsor fares for the unique, one-day event. All day on Dec. 22, no fares will be required; bus drivers will be instructed not to accept fares and rail stations will be posted with signs indicating that no fares are required.

The Council is proud to co-sponsor this Free Fare Friday - just a way to improve air quality, and rethink your commute. More info:http://www.slccouncil.com/?post_type=press-releases&p=9716&preview=true
