Mayoral candidate Jackie Biskupski is floating the idea of a new bus system to fill in the gaps that aren't covered by UTA.
In an interview with FOX 13 on Monday, Biskupski detailed her proposal that she said would work in tandem with the system already in place by Utah Transit Authority. Biskupski said UTA's system in Salt Lake City is more of a "regional system" that does not provide all that city residents need.
"They're not local," she said. "That's been our biggest problem and I think we have to stop denying that and really take accountability as a city and a community that wants public transportation to be the means of operation here. If we want that and we want to clear the air, we've got to finally jump in."
