    My son rides the UTA to high school, approximately 2 miles. The cost of a student fare is $2.25, which I consider to be very high for such a short ride. I recently rode the bus from SLC to Ogden and as an adult paid the same fare for a much, much longer ride. In addition to charging more for longer trips, the UTA should consider a more significant discount for student riders.
