Tom Callan, KSL NewsradioA new method of counting shows fewer of you riding TRAX trains.

Forget the humans. TRAX is using a new infrared system to count passengers, and it shows a drop.

"We think it's down about 3 to 5 percent," said UTA's Carrie Bonsack-Ware.

She says the infrared method is more accurate. She notes that ridership peaked last year at about 58,000.

But she says no matter how you count, there are still more riders than when TRAX made the original projections back in 1999.
