Public Transportation

So maybe you arrive in Utah via airplane, train or bus with no plans on how to get around. Certainly you can rent a car. But there may be options to get around using public transportation, particularly along the populous and vibrant Wasatch Front. Utah's capital city, Salt Lake, and nearby and Salt Lake City International Airport are at the heart of the Wasatch Front. Both are connected with convenient light rail. From there, you have a few options.

Transit Overview

A network of Greyhound serves Utah and Amtrak's California Zephyr cuts across the state serving several Utah stops along the route from Chicago to San Francisco. The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) serves the Wasatch Front with regular bus, light rail and commuter rail schedules. FrontRunner commuter rail links Salt Lake to both Ogden in the north and Provo in the south, while TRAX light rail serves Salt Lake County including Salt Lake International Airport to downtown Salt Lake City in just 20 minutes. TRAX also serves the University of Utah, the Delta Center (home of the Utah Jazz), Temple Square and Rio Tinto Stadium (home of Real Salt Lake).

Ski Buses

UTA Ski Buses serve all four Salt Lake resorts, Sundance and Park City-area resorts via the PC-SLC Connect and Powder Mountain and Snowbasin near Ogden. Park City and Summit County offer free public transportation. Salt Lake City also offers a local ski shuttle, with service to all four Salt Lake resorts (Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude).
