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
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.
