Extra trains good idea

SHARE Extra trains good idea

Is it religious preference for TRAX to provide extra service the weekend of LDS general conference, as Todd Ouzts suggests (Readers' Forum, April 6)? Perhaps so — if the service were free, the Mormons didn't pay taxes or conference weekend was the only time extra trains are scheduled. I believe TRAX provides extra service for any predictable large flow of its constituents into and out of the city. Rush hour, the Olympics, Jazz games, the Christmas holiday for shopping and viewing the lights, both on and off Temple Square, and Ute football come to mind. To not provide such service the first weekend each April and October would be both bad business and blatant religious discrimination. I do believe the Mormons are still citizens of the state they founded.
