(KSL News) -- A group showed up to protest UTA today; they say they're being double charged to ride the bus.
"We pay taxes at the store, why should we pay for anymore?"
The Anti-Hunger Action Committee says part of Utah's grocery store sales tax goes to UTA, so charging a bus fare on top of paying taxes means bus riders are paying twice.
UTA is planning a bus fare hike, but this group says that's too much.
Beth Vincent, Protester: "It just takes more money out of what I already can't afford."
Not only do they oppose the hike, they say riding the bus should be free. They want to extend UTA's free fare zone to include all of Salt Lake County.
