UTA Ski Service Cuts

 UTA announced yesterday major cuts to ski bus service for this coming winter.  For the Cottonwoods:

  • Route 953 up Little Cottonwood is suspended
  • Route 972 up Big Cottonwood cut from 15-minute to 30-minute service
  • Route 994 up Little Cottonwood cut from 15-minute to 30-minute service.
A full description of cuts (or what they call "adjustments") is at  Below is a screenshot from that site, discussing their explanation for these service cuts. 

There are a few other cuts in service on non-ski routes (see  In Salt Lake county, four non-ski routes will see service frequency reductions.  

I hereby declare Joni Mitchell's song Big Yellow Taxi the official song of the Central Wasatch.  "Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got until it's gone."


  1. Call me crazy but are they purposefully trying to make the canyon more packed so the billion dollar gondola can be brought in?

  2. Seeing how hard it is to get employees hired for high paying tech jobs these days I can't even imagine how short staffed something like a bus service would be at this point in time.
