(Provo-AP) -- The Utah Transit Authority said it will provide some relief to commuters who have twice petitioned the agency about being stuck on buses without air conditioning.

Nearly 100 people signed the latest petition delivered to the U-T-A on Wednesday.

It was the second petition this month.

An agency spokeswoman says new buses have been ordered for Utah County and could be in service by next summer.

To see what can be done in the meantime, a mechanic was sent to ride the express bus and hear passenger concerns. As a result, fans will be installed on one bus on Monday as an experiment to see whether it improves passenger comfort.
