Getting Around

The Utah Transit Authority provides extensive public transport coverage in Salt Lake City by means of a light rail system called TRAX and an excellent bus service. One-day passes are available for use on both TRAX and the city buses, and there is an extensive Free Fare Zone for both forms of transport downtown around Temple Square. During the winter a ski bus connects the city to nearby ski resorts. Metered taxis are freely available throughout the city and can be hailed on the street or ordered by telephone; Lyft and Uber are available. Driving around in Salt Lake City is fairly straightforward as the city is designed on a grid system, with wide streets and a freeway system connecting the suburbs and surrounding areas.
