Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio UTA will stop going to a busy part of Salt Lake County if new route proposals are passed.

UTA is making dramatic changes to its routes all over Salt Lake County.

Jeff Harris, UTA project manager: "There hasn't been a major overhaul or a major rethinking of the bus system since 1970."

But, according to the latest plans, no buses will go to the International Center. UTA Project Manager Jeff Harris says the current route averages less than one person per trip between the airport and the Center.

Jeff Harris: "We want to get the public's input, and if we've missed something, then we want to know about it and make necessary adjustments before it's implemented in August."

UTA will have public hearings on the new routes, but critics say these hearings are just a show, and the lack of service could put some people out of work.
