Initially opened for business in 1999, TRAX provided service along a 16-mile corridor in the Salt Lake City area. Three additional extensions have been added with two more in progress.
TRAX - Light Rail
The Wasatch Front has a light rail system operated by Utah Transit Authority (UTA) called TRAX. TRAX currently runs from Salt Lake City International Airport near Terminal 1 to downtown Salt Lake City and the Intermodal Hub, a couple of blocks west of downtown (connections with FrontRunner to Ogden or Provo and Amtrak's California Zephyr), to the south end of the Salt Lake Valley (Draper Town Center near 12300 South), eastward to the University of Utah and the University of Utah Medical Center, and westward to both West Valley (Green Line to/from Airport) and Daybreak (Red Line to/from the University of Utah).
Transfers take place at the Courthouse stop at 450 So. Main Street, which is important for travelers heading to the University who have arrived from the airport or FrontRunner commuter rail. There is also an "S" Line streetcar connecting Salt Lake's popular Sugar House district with the main TRAX lines.
TRAX stops near all three of Salt Lake City's major malls, the central business district, Temple Square, Gallivan Plaza and many other top visitor destinations.
Consult UTA for updates, schedules and additional information.
