Thinking About Salt Lake City: Getting Around

Worried about how you’ll see all the sights/sites of Salt Lake City and surrounding areas? Utah has an excellent public transportation system along the Wasatch Front; in conjunction with Uber, Lyft, GreenBikes, and scooters, you can get anywhere you want to go!

Utah Transportation Authority (UTA):  UTA operates the local bus, TRAX (light rail system), and FrontRunner (commuter rail system).
Schedules, maps, and trip planning tools are all located on the UTA website. One-way adult fare on the bus, TRAX, and FrontRunner is $2.50.

Once you’ve arrived at Salt Lake City International Airport, hop on the Green TRAX line and take it to Courthouse Square (it generally departs the airport every fifteen minutes, with some exclusions); the Grand America Hotel (conference hotel) is one block south of this stop.

Uber and Lyft both operate on the Wasatch Front and are the most convenient option to travel to Park City (although you can take the bus as well). Park City is very walkable and local buses within the city are free. There are also several taxi companies that serve the Wasatch Front including Yellow Cab and City Cab. Note: It is not legal in Utah to hail a cab curbside.

FrontRunner is your ticket to see the greater Wasatch Front, including Provo and Ogden; FrontRunner also connects with bus and TRAX stops.

Interested in getting some exercise while seeing the sights/sites? Try out GREENbike, Salt Lake City’s nonprofit bike sharing service. A network of bike stations are available in downtown Salt Lake, including a station located one block west of the Grand America Hotel (conference hotel).

For the adventurous at heart, both Bird and Lime scooter services are available in Salt Lake City. The downtown area is relatively flat and conducive to scooter-riding; just remember to ride in designated bike lanes and park your scooter in such a way that it doesn’t block access to walkways.

Whatever your transit mode of choice, we know you’ll have fun exploring all the Beehive State has to offer!
