Salt Lake City has something in common with New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. As of this summer, it now has a tour bus to different sites around Utah's captiol city. Unfortunately, the engine for this idea isn't revving up very quickly. Last year Jerry Dolejs came to Utah for the first time. He brought with him a new idea: big bus.
Sightseeing tour bus goes around the city in about 90 minutes, people can hop-on, hop-off.
Hop-on or hop-off at 19 stops like Temple Square, Hogle Zoo and City Creek all while learning the history of each location on the open-air bus. Dolejs operates a similar company in Victoria British Columbia but it was a woman from Midvale who gave him the idea to bring Big Bus to Salt Lake City.
