In July 2008, UTA opened its first MAX bus rapid transit (BRT) line. The line currently operates along 3500 South between the 3300 South TRAX Station and Magna. Between 5600 West and 2700 West, the route operates in a dedicated guideway, separate from regular traffic.

BRT is often referred to as light rail with rubber tires, offering limited stops and traffic signal priority. Tickets for the route may be purchased at ticket vending machines, located on at any BRT station and passengers may board at any of the buses’ three doors.

Future routes are being planned along 5600 West in Salt Lake County and along University Parkway in Utah County.
