Bus rapid transit (BRT) uses specialized buses that run in dedicated traffic lanes to efficiently transport large numbers of riders to their destinations. BRT systems feature many of the amenities of light rail, like frequent service, traffic signal priority, ticket vending machines, shelters and benches, while providing communities with a lower-cost, more flexible transit solution.
The UTA system currently offers 2 BRT lines:
- UVX or Utah Valley Express – a ten-mile line in Provo and Orem.
- 35 MAX (temporarily suspended)- a nine-mile line connecting Magna and West Valley to the Millcreek TRAX Station.
