For more than a decade, UTA’s TRAX light rail system has carried passengers throughout Salt Lake County.  The TRAX system currently has three lines:  

  • Red line (servicing South Jordan, West Jordan, Sandy, Midvale, Murray, South Salt Lake, and Salt Lake cities as well as the University of Utah campus)
  • Green line (servicing West Valley, Salt Lake, South Salt Lake, Murray, Midvale and Sandy cities), and
  • Blue Line (servicing Sandy, Midvale, Murray, South Salt Lake, Salt Lake cities and the downtown Salt Lake area including Salt Lake Central station).

When the line initially opened in 1999, TRAX provided service along a 16-mile corridor between Sandy and downtown Salt Lake City. In 2001, the line was extended to the University of Utah and then in 2003, to the University’s medical complex. Additional extensions to West Valley City and Mid-Jordan were opened in August 2011. Two additional lines – an extension south to Draper and west to Salt Lake City International Airport – are expected to open before 2015.
