TRAX, UTA’s light rail system, offers convenient connections to community destinations, shopping centers, schools and universities, FrontRunner stations, bus hubs and Park & Ride lots throughout the Salt Lake valley. TRAX runs seven days per week, with 15-minute frequency during peak times.
TRAX is electrically powered via a pantograph that connects the train to overhead catenary wires. Trains can range in length from one to four cars depending on time, day and projected ridership.
Fare must be purchased before boarding at an on-platform ticket vending machine or UTA customer service location. Riders can also pay using FAREPAY cards or other forms of electronic payment by tapping the card on the card reader before boarding and after exiting the train.
The first segment of TRAX opened on Dec. 4, 1999, and connected riders from Salt Lake City to Sandy. Today, TRAX features three lines: the Blue Line from Draper to Salt Lake City, the Red Line from South Jordan to the University of Utah and the Green Line from West Valley to the Salt Lake International Airport, for a total 42.5 miles of line and 50 stations.
