Utah – Starting this weekend, public transit riders should prepare for new changes to UTA service routes and times.
The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) will be adding ski bus service starting Dec. 11.
There are seven routes that provide access to Weber, Salt Lake and Utah Counties.
Routes headed to Snowbasin and Powder Mountain begin Dec. 11, routes headed to the four Big and Little Cottonwood Canyon resorts begin Dec. 12 and the route for Sundance Ski Resort begins Dec. 18.
In order to accommodate new user patterns and destinations, UTA makes service adjustments three times a year.
The ski bus service will begin in December and end in April. Sunday service hours for TRAX will be extended starting this Sunday.
“This is especially helpful for our airport travelers, where the airport station’s last train is moving from 8:08 p.m. to 11:37 p.m. on Sundays,” says UTA.
Sunday TRAX hours will be extended for about two to three hours to accommodate increased traffic.
A new service is debuting on Dec. 13 — UTA On-Demand – SLC Westside. UTA on Demand is an app-based service that matches multiple riders headed in the same direction into a single ride. The new line will serve Salt Lake City’s Westside neighborhoods including Rose Park, Poplar Grove, Fairpark, and Glendale.
