Utah restaurants serving Christmas dinner

UTA will not be running trains, buses on Christmas, New Year's

Utah's mass transit bus and rail service will not operate on Christmas Day or New Years day, with the exception of the ski bus service to some ski resorts. The Daily Herald has this article explaining the schedule changes. Below are excerpts.

"This will be one of the few days of the year that we don't operate anything but the ski buses," UTA spokesman Gerry Carpenter said.

Carpenter noted that while the ski buses in other areas of the state will run on the holidays, the ski bus to Sundance won't be in operation as UTA has found that there isn't a high demand for the Sundance service on those days.

FrontRunner and the buses will run regular schedules on Christmas Eve and return to regular operation the day after Christmas.

On New Year's Eve there will be extended late night service for those hoping to catch FrontRunner from Salt Lake City back to Utah County. One train is set to leave Salt Lake headed south at 12:16 a.m. New Year's Day, while another will depart at 1:21 a.m., and then the service will shut down for the day.
