The other day my co-worker came up to me and said, "You'll find this interesting."

(Spoiler alert: it was about transit.)

"This" was a hotel bill for a fancy-schmancy hotel in downtown Salt Lake, which will credit you $5 for showing your TRAX ticket at the front desk when you check in.

(For some reason, it seems like I should have a picture of the hotel bill here as proof, or at least as a visual aid.  But my co-worker didn't offer, and I didn't ask.)

Apparently it costs less for the hotel to reimburse you for your TRAX fare than it does to run a shuttle up to the airport to transport you.  And by "apparently," I mean obviously.
