This feature also allows you to enter a street address which will then provide a list of all bus stop ID’s on that street.Once your origin and destination addresses have been successfully entered into the Trip Planner, enter additional trip details into the appropriate fields including your dates and times you wish to travel. Please note the Trip Planner will not plan trips more than 30 days into the future.
The Trip Planner’s Advanced Options Menu allows you to filter results based on travel time, fewest number of transfers or shortest walking distance. Trips can also be filtered by mode of travel. Selecting rail will produce itineraries that only include UTA TRAX, FrontRunner or Streetcar services and selecting bus will show trips that only include UTA bus service. Selecting both bus and rail will generate itineraries that may include all UTA services.
When you have entered in the necessary information, clicking the Submit button will direct the Trip Planner to generate travel itineraries. The Reset button will clear all fields on the form.
