Welcome to Utah Waste Buster!

In the spirit of economic prudence and doing what's best with your hard earned tax dollars, Representative John Dougall, Senator Stephen Urquhart, and Senator Daniel Liljenquist have created this website so that you, the hardworking people of Utah, can speak out against unnecessary use of tax money. Help us stop wasteful government spending! Tell us where you've found it so we can stop it in its tracks; and while you're here vote on other posts as well. You citizens are the ultimate government watchdogs.

I would say the buses (that the state of Utah helps to fund) driving around with no one on them a collosal waste (not only money wise but pollution wise too). There are a few things that can be done to help with the problem.
First we could cut back on the services for the buses that don't normally carry anybody around to once every hour, or even less if possible. Second, we could start purchasing smaller buses. Third, (now this is for the long term view) we could implement a "smart" system where the route varies depending whoever signs up to ride. You could automate this by having people sign up online and, of course, you would have to have a call in service for those w/o internet. This would take a year or two to develop but it would definitely be worth while, I imagine there would be less pollution and less financial waste once it is all said and done.
I write this because I had to take the bus the other day to go pick up my car at the mechanic and the bus driver said that noone ever rode on this route during the time of day I took it, what a waste!
