Salt Lake City — A Utah Transit Authority bus driver has reached an impressive milestone — driving 4,000,000 miles without incident.

Dale Brady is the company’s first operator to achieve the record, according to a UTA press release Wednesday afternoon.

His accomplishments on December 29, 2022 were recognized by the UTA Board of Trustees.

“As an organization, we are extremely proud to have one of our team members achieve this impressive milestone: 4 million accident-free miles, which is probably unparalleled nationwide,” said UTA Board Chairman Carlton Christensen. Chairman Carlton Christensen said. “This reflects the quality of all our operators and their commitment to the safety of the passengers we serve and the public.”

“It’s an honor to share this moment with Dale and his family and those of us at UTA,” said UTA Executive Director Jay Fox. “Dale’s 46 years happened in just one day and one trip. A model of life for our communities as we transport them to key destinations and opportunities every day.”

Brady, who joined UTA in April 1976, is humbled by this recognition and achievement.

“I don’t really like honking my horn — it’s just driving,” he said. “I chose to work for a good company. I drove a lot of hours and it provided my family with necessities.”

Brady also gave special recognition to the work of his fellow UTA bus operators, including his friend of 46 years, Art LeFevre.

“Art is closer than I am. If his health hadn’t declined, he would have gotten there first.”

According to the release, LeFevre died in July 2022, and Brady “drove more miles so that together they could receive the 4 million-mile safety award.”

Brady will also be recognized at the Utah Legislature’s first transportation committee meeting on Jan. 20.
