Project Overview

Cache Valley Electric’s Signal & Utility division played a critical role in finishing Utah Transit Authority’s Utah Valley Express line. UVX for short, is a bus rapid transit (BRT) line similar to UTA TRAX that features articulated buses that reduce travel times by using exclusive bus lanes and traffic signal priority. The UVX line was completed in 2018, and runs 10.5 miles from Orem to Provo, Utah. 

What is BRT?

BRT is an innovative, high-capacity public transit solution that can significantly improve urban mobility and increase travel choices in a community. BRT uses specialized buses on roadways and dedicated lanes to quickly and efficiently transport passengers to their destinations.
