(KSL News) Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson is urging the Utah Transit Authority to create a bus ridership task force.

The Deseret Morning News reports Anderson wrote a letter saying the number of people using public transit could double if UTA were to reach out to the community.

That letter was written just before UTA approved a redesign of the Salt Lake County bus system, which -- among other things -- moves buses out of neighborhoods and onto busier streets.

Anderson says he stands by his letter, but has not given his opinion on the redesign.
