Snow routing occurs when UTA buses are unable to follow their regular route due to inclement weather. If there is a substantial amount of snow or ice on the roads, buses will avoid steep hills in favor of safer routes. Snow routing only affects select UTA bus routes and is only put into place during or immediately after severe weather. Once roads are cleared, buses will resume their regular routes.
What to Expect
When routes are placed on snow routing, a notification will be posted on UTA’s Twitter feed. UTA’s website home page will be updated with a snow routing alert.
When a bus is on snow routing, it will detour from its regular route. You may need to catch your bus at a different location during this time. You can refer to your route’s specific snow routing map (see below) to determine where to catch the bus. If you need assistance, please call 801-743-3882 or contact us on Twitter at @RideUTA.
Snow Routing Tips
- Routes that may be affected by snow routing will have snow routing signs on bus stops.
- Please note that buses will only stay on snow routing until road conditions improve, at which time they will resume their regular routes. We recommend you check to see if your bus is still on snow routing before starting your trip by calling 801-743-3882 or contacting us on Twitter at @RideUTA.
- Routes 6 and 11 have multiple options for snow routing, depending on the severity of road conditions. Check Twitter or contact Customer Service to see which snow route the bus will use.
- Follow us on Twitter or the Transit App to ensure that you receive snow routing alerts.
