UTAH, June 3, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Utah Transit Authority will resume front door boarding on its buses as well as regular fare inspection on June 14, UTA announced Thursday.
“UTA’s safety practices, in conjunction with COVID-19 restrictions being lifted, make it possible for riders to safely resume using the front door of the bus,” the transit authority said. “UTA continues to clean and disinfect vehicles, stations, and facilities on a daily basis.”
In compliance with an order issued by the CDC promoting COVID-19 safety in domestic and international travel, face masks are still required to ride UTA.
Exceptions to the face mask requirement include those with a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a face mask or children under two.
UTA is not requiring riders to be vaccinated or show proof of vaccination to use its services, the news release said. However, UTA continues to offer free fares to and from vaccination appointments through June 30. More specific details on this can be found here.
