SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Public transportation riders in Utah will be able to catch buses and trains more frequently and for longer hours on weekends when changes go into effect in August.

KSL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1E7jrqT ) that on Wednesday the Utah Transit Authority announced it will offer extended hours and increase the frequency of buses and trains on some designated routes.

General Manager Michael Allegra says the changes were made possible due to an increase in financial savings that the agency was able to put toward additional service without cost to riders.

The summer will also bring riders discounts and the “Rider’s License” summer pass will be available for youths.

Allegra says the agency is working with local policymakers to develop additional funding to provide more resources and expand service to transit riders.
