Proposals are as follows:

Routes 626 and 627
The route 626 proposal includes moving the southern terminus of the route to the Clearfield FrontRunner station instead of the Weber State Davis Campus. The route will then change to the 627 at the Clearfield FrontRunner station and continue on to the Weber State Davis Campus.

The route 627 proposal includes extending the north section of the route from the Weber State Davis Campus to the Clearfield FrontRunner station, where it will connect with the realigned 626. No other changes are proposed for the existing 626 or 627 alignments. The proposal also includes adding 30-minute peak hour weekday service to both routes, increasing the weekday span of service to roughly 9 p.m., and adding 60-minute Saturday service to both routes.

Routes 664 and 665
UTA proposes to eliminate these two routes due to low ridership. Representatives from UTA Rideshare will be available to explain vanpool and other transportation options during the Public Hearing.
