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

We Want a Better Bus System



Voters voted for an improvement in the transit system. Voters did not vote for bus routes cuts and changes that increase the number of vehicles on the road and increase unemployment due to individuals losing their transportation to work.

Voters did not vote for the disabled and the elderly losing their independence because of bus routes being canceled. Voters did not vote for an inefficient transit system.

Voters did not vote for Utah Transit Authority executives to receive excessive and bonuses at taxpayers’ expense.

A good bus system helps job growth and the economy.
