Is Utah Transit Authority a state or local government?

The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) is a public transit agency that operates bus, light rail, and commuter rail services in the state of Utah. While UTA provides transportation services to residents throughout the state, it is not a state government agency.

UTA is governed by a board of trustees, which is appointed by the governor of Utah and approved by the Utah State Senate. The board of trustees is responsible for setting policies and overseeing the operations of UTA. However, UTA is considered to be a local government agency, as it is a political subdivision of the state of Utah and is primarily funded through local taxes and federal grants.
