SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah residents will be able to have free rides on public transit later this week.

The Utah Transit Authority is waiving fares for public transportation on Thursday and Friday.

KUTV in Salt Lake City reported Monday that the fare will be free for FrontRunner, TRAX and bus lines.

Transportation officials say last year’s free-fare day saw a 23 percent jump in ridership.

In addition, traffic was down.
