TRAX Will Now Take People To Salt Lake Airport

Getting to and from Salt LakeInternational Airport will become easier as of this weekend, when the Utah Transit Authority officially launches the new Airport TRAX light rail line.

The line will have convenient stops in downtown Salt Lake City, along North Temple and at the airport. The airport stop will be within easy walking distance of both terminals.

This means that travelers will be able to use public transportation to easily get from the airport to downtown hotels, or to stops where they can catch buses up to our ski resorts.

UTA provided the information below. You may also want to read this Deseret News article: Here's what you need to know about taking TRAX to the SLC airport
