Public Transit District Customer Information
Bill: SB-12

Threat level: Lights out - Bad for right to know

Sponsor: Kevin Van Tassell, R-Vernal

Link to the bill

This bill would make a private record of all customer information from transit agencies, principally the Utah Transit Authority. It is entirely proper to protect customer credit card information, but this bill is overly broad, written to include trip information and other data that the public can use to analyze the transit agency's efficiency without exposing transit customers. This bill gets a "lights out" for needlessly restricting useful information from the public.
