How does Santa get around when his reindeer are resting? On UTA, of course! On Friday, Dec. 23, he’ll be visiting with riders and operating FrontRunner before greeting guests at Salt Lake Central Station. Bring the kids down to say hello and take a #UTASantaSelfie with him at the station or on the train.

Please note that Santa’s schedule is subject to change. Check in with us at for updates. We want to see your pictures, so use the #UTASantaSelfie hashtag on your photos.
