(Salt Lake City-AP) -- About three-fourths of Wasatch Front residents responding to a Utah Transit Authority survey supported constructing a commuter-rail system between Salt Lake City and Weber County.

The survey questioned 601 people in Weber, Davis and Salt Lake counties.

Respondents ranked travel time and proximity of the stations as the most important features of the system, if they were to ride commuter rail.

Fifty-six percent of respondents said they were likely to ride commuter rail, including 18 percent who said they were very likely to ride the rail.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2005, with the first segment beginning service in 2007.
