Utah Announces New Public Transportation Options

Utah is expanding its bus, light rail and commuter rail systems, which provide options for people traveling around the Ogden, Salt Lake City, Provo and Park City areas. That includes public transportation to and from our International Airport and to ski resorts in the Cottonwood Canyons and Park City areas.

Today the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) announced enhancements that include “more frequent commuter rail service, the opening of a light rail extension in Draper and enhancements to university bus service in Weber and Salt Lake counties.”

That's according to this article in the Deseret News. Below are excerpts.

Starting Aug. 18, FrontRunner will offer hourly service on Saturdays, with departures changed to match weekday times. In addition, UTA will also launch service on the new Draper TRAX extension. The 3.8-mile line will expand service into Draper providing three new light rail stations to South Valley commuters.

The Draper TRAX Line also will mark the completion of the FrontLines 2015 project, which will add more than 70 miles of new rail lines to the UTA system and is expected to be completed two years ahead of schedule and $300 million under budget, according to the company.
