Salt Lake City, Utah – Traversing the City

Salt Lake City is the largest city in Utah. With a dense estimated population of 200,000 across 110 miles. Despite it’s small size in comparison to most metropolitan cities. It is equipped with multiple methods of traversing across town, the most popular of which being the implemented Trax system.

The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has many different travel methods, the most popular being:


• Light Rail System
• Bus
• Front Runner

The fares for the light rail and bus system are as follows:

• One Way- $2.50 per adult, $1.25 per senior/reduced, $1.25 per student/youth
• Day Pass- $5.00 per adult, senior/reduced, student/youth
• Month Pass- $85.00 per adult, $42.50 per senior/reduced, $42.50 per student/youth

The fares for the FrontRunner are as follows:

• One way- $2.50 per adult, $1.25 per senior/reduced, $1.25 per student/youth
• Day Pass- $5.00 per adult, $2.50 per senior/reduced, $2.50 per student/youth
• Per Stop- $.60 per adult, $.30 per senior/reduced, $.30 per student/youth

If one were to use the every trax option there is also a universal pass:

• Month- $170.00 per adult, $85.00 per senior/reduced, $85.00 per student/youth

Light Rail System

The light rail system is the most popular of the 3 methods, with over 30 checkpoints across 7 transit lines, the light rail system regulates the flow of most residents crossing through Salt Lake city. As a result, a train must pass by a new checkpoint every 15-20 minutes. Making it so that anybody can catch one within a reasonable time frame. Taking advantage of the light rail system will allow visitors to discover some incredible bakeries in Salt Lake City.

Bus System

The Bus system is the longest of the transportation methods in Salt Lake City. With well over 100 stops in transit the bus system can take you to almost any area unreachable by trax. Although the wait time is longer and requires more planning. Reaching a destination (such as these 7 surprising hidden gems in Sugar House) in half the time required to traverse by foot is well worth it.

FrontRunner System

The FrontRunner can be considered the most niche of travel options. As its checkpoints number in a mere 15, with each stop being spread far between Ogden and Provo. However it is still the more inexpensive option compared to driving the distance. As if one were to work or is needed outside of Salt Lake City, the FrontRunner can easily get one to the general area.
