We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

UTA Fail



Since August 2007, UTA has been cutting bus routes, which puts more vehicles on the road. Unemployment goes up because many lose their transportation to work. UTA is talking about adding more TRAX lines but reducing buses. UTA is not improving the transit system. They are making it worse.

Our economy is getting worse and individuals at all income levels are hurting right now. Not having a good bus system increases poverty and crime. UTA actions support big oil.
