OGDEN, Utah, May 28, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — President Donald Trump on Thursday afternoon said he would commit $64.5 million to build a bus bridge between two locations in Ogden.

  1. This is for the Ogden Bus Rapid Transit BRT route. It will run from the FrontRunner Station at the Ogden Transit Center to Weber State University and McKay Dee Hospital. It is a 5.3 mile project.
