Utah's Transit Authority officials travel the world
Documents obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune have revealed that Utah's Transit Authority CEO has spent more than $600,000 on international travel. Trips range from China to the United Arab Emirates and also include 17 U.S. cities.
"But UTA officials say they receive great value from travel, learning from mistakes and successes of other transit agencies. They say the travel is necessary to lobby for federal money and helps in developing strategies to change Utah’s "car-first" culture."
