The Utah Transit Authority has decided what new “color name” to attach to each of its TRAX lines. Not surprisingly, the line that travels to the University of Utah will become the red line.
“We felt like we didn’t have much choice but to name it the red line. If we had tried to name it the blue line (the color of rival Brigham Young University), there would have been blood in the streets,” said UTA spokesman Gerry Carpenter.
UTA on Friday released color codes for TRAX lines as it announced some of its celebration plans for opening its new West Valley City and Mid-Jordan TRAX extensions on Aug. 7.
