UTA TRAX, fix your effing doors!

I know the UTA transit system readjusted their routes so as to accommodate fiscal savings in their budget. Which means, that they should have some extra cash on hand to fix the doors on their trains. Seems like lately its been a game of chance on which door to pick. If you have a bicycle you only get two chances to get it right before the train leaves you stranded and estranged like some out of work illegal immigrant. Though watching people frenzy to try and catch a train and miss it by moments always makes me smile it shouldn't be because the train's doors don't work.

But really, doors on any vehicle are VERY basic functions of transportation. People should not have to consider the doors opening on public transportation a luxury.
