Our very favorite transit authority, medicine UTA, website like this is adding a TRAX stop at 900 South and 200 West. I’ve been watching construction on the stop for a couple of weeks as we ride by, seek and UTA says that the stop should be ready for use by the beginning of September. However, yesterday our train driver (or is that engineer? maybe just operator?) came over the loudspeaker and told us that as of yesterday all TRAX trains are required to stop at the 900 South station. They won’t allow anybody to get on or get off, but they still must stop at the station.
This begs the question: why? Do the operators need practice stopping at the station? I mean, until the station is operational, why are we stopping at it?
Another UTA mystery. But I don’t think I’ll bother writing a letter to the editor about this one. 😉
