Marc Giauque, KSL Newsradio Back to school may bring some additional angst to students returning to class on Monday. It's a day after UTA begins running a major redesign of its bus routes.

Most students will ride the school bus, but others ride UTA. They're still trying to figure out how they'll get to class come Monday.

But Justin Jones, the manager of the bus redesign project, said there should be very few of them. "It may not be able to get everybody that currently rides the system picked up where they have been and take them where they used to go. But most people will be able to get where they need to go," he said.

Jones said essentially, the system hasn't been redesigned since the '70s. He said hundreds of people will be at stops and on buses Monday and Tuesday, trying to alleviate any confusion.

The Jordan School District says it doesn't expect much impact. A spokesman says relatively few students ride UTA to get to school.
