This Saturday brings many exciting events to the Wasatch Front. Record-breaking crowds are expected in downtown Salt Lake City, and thousands of people will head to Utah County for Brigham Young University’s first football home game. The Utah Transit Authority has planned extra service to help the day go as smoothly as possible. Here’s a rundown of what we have planned and a few travel tips that will help you reach your destination efficiently. More information is available here.
Extended Service for Saturday, Sept. 7
Starting at 1 p.m., FrontRunner will run every 30 minutes until the end of service.
In Provo, the 830 bus will offer direct service from FrontRunner stations to LaVell Edwards Stadium. Please note that route 830 will detour from its normal route 1.5 hours before the game and one hour after the game, and will not service bus stops at 700 North, 900 North, and University Parkway east of Canyon Road during that time. The last FrontRunner train from Provo to Ogden will depart from Provo Station at 10:50 p.m. The last train from Provo to Salt Lake will depart at 1:20 a.m.
Remember that for the University of Utah football game, you can use your game day ticket as fare on TRAX, buses and FrontRunner for the event. In addition to our regular service, we’ll have trains running from Draper to Rice-Eccles Stadium every 20 minutes from 9:59 a.m. until 11:19 a.m. Blue Line service will also be provided from the stadium to Draper after the game. Direct bus service will also be available from Salt Lake Central Station to stadium.
Leave plenty of time to catch your train and make connections. Trains and platforms may be more crowded than usual.
Consider buying a group pass, which allows a group of up to four people to ride FrontRunner, TRAX and buses for $15 all day after 10 a.m.
