You read that bus service was cut? You just READ that bus service was cut?
I have been on the receiving end of transit service cuts for years, even before 2011 when all the rail lines began opening. And a service cut hurts, even when that service is going somewhere else. No one is more ready for night service to come back than I am. It affects me at least once a week (less often now that I'm not trying to come back from Provo late at night), though I guess I don't complain about it bitterly enough here for the average Trib commenter to notice.
But I can't abide people who just stand on the sidelines and take potshots. Actually use UTA, if you dare, and then come back with legitimate, constructive criticism of the system. Repeating the same vague invective over and over from outside the lines is a cowardly, ineffectual approach to a change that you probably wouldn't recognize when it happened anyway.
And now this:
I sure hope there was nobody on that train, because that would mean that some other foamer got a preview ride and I didn't, and then I would be bitter indeed.
Trust me, there will be people on the Draper Line when it, ahem, actually opens for business. Even if no new people started riding TRAX at all because of the extension, people would still ride from 12300 South because they can get on there instead of driving to Sandy Civic Center (while Sandy Civic Center will hopefully, as I predicted, accidentally turn into a hipster hot spot . . .). But, given that every other TRAX opening has drawn crowds during the hours of the day when the freeway also draws crowds, I'm guessing there will be at least a few brand new people who start taking the Draper Line when it opens.
