The long-anticipated Utah Transit Authority Provo to Salt Lake FrontRunner will open to the public next weekend, but members of the media were invited to climb aboard this morning for a test ride.
The smooth ride is accompanied by a surprisingly remarkable view of the low lands adjacent to the Jordan River. The trip takes about an hour each way.
Paul O'brien is the rail service general manager. He prides the FrontRunner south line on expanding service hours to Provo beyond what the current express buses provide and creating options for a faster trip as well.
