This new route was made possible through Proposition 1 funds. To make this route “free fare”, Layton City, Davis County, Davis Hospital, Davis Conference Center, Layton Hills Mall, Tanner Clinic, and 7 hotels (Holiday Inn Express, Home2Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Fairfield Inn, TownPlace Suites, Courtyard, and the Hampton) all came together to provide funds.


This service will start as a bus, but will transition to a trolley in 2017.
