Salt Lake Tribune: UTA Pay High? Real Numbers Are Higher Yet

Utah: the best managed state?

Hold onto your hats, folks. IT'S OFFICIAL! Thanks to the re-juggling of Utah Transit Authority reported data, we learn from the Salt Lake Tribune that the heads of the UTA are now making DOUBLE the salary of the heads of both New York's and Boston's public transportation systems. And that's merely the tip of the iceberg.

Read the "good" news here:
Sodden Queries:
A Weber County Forum Tip O' the Hat to Utah political watchdog eric Etherington for the mind-bending heads-up.

Comments anyone?

But they still can't afford to provide any service on Sunday.

Let me add that Portland Exec Dir makes $227,900 a year and Trimet serves 532 Sq Miles, 1.5M population. 603 buses, 66 miles of commuter rail, and hours are 5AM to 2AM they vary and have weekend and holiday hours too. Average ridership in 2013 316,700 per day. There is a tram from the South Waterfront to OHSU and VA Hospital with great views.

That's crap. Much like some of their schedules and driving. Almost cost my daughter her job at lagoon due to their inability to get their buses to frontrunner on time.
