Annual ADA Celebration

Each year UTA and the Committee for Accessible Transportation (CAT) celebrate the progress that has been made in transit accessibility since the signing of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA).

With the invaluable assistance of CAT, UTA works diligently and comprehensively to ensure it provides accessible and inclusive transportation services and facilities. This celebratory event is not only a way to highlight the progress to date, but a way to inspire people to continue the work in an on-going effort.

This year’s event will be held Thursday, July 26, 2018 from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at UTA Frontline Headquarters Building located at 669 W. 200 S., Salt Lake City. The event is open the whole community and light refreshments will be served.

If you would like to invite groups you work with or post on a bulletin board, a flier can be found here.
