TRAX Airport Line Marks One Year

Press Release

May 1, 2014

April marks the one-year anniversary of the Utah Transit Authority’s TRAX extension to the Salt Lake International Airport. This segment of the Green Line opened to the public on April 14, 2013, providing access from the airport to downtown Salt Lake City and the rest of UTA’s rail and bus system.

To celebrate the anniversary UTA employees gave out UTA water bottles on the Green Line.

The six-mile TRAX extension was constructed along North Temple, the traditional western gateway to the city, and connects riders to dozens of locally owned shops and restaurants. Each of the extension’s six stations features artwork designed to represent the community’s cultural heritage and enhance the public transportation experience.

With the completion of the six-mile extension, the Green Line runs from West Valley City into downtown Salt Lake before turning west again onto North Temple. In March, more than 16,000 people boarded the Green Line on an average weekday.

The airport extension was one of the final components of UTA’s FrontLines 2015 initiative, designed to add 70 miles of rail to UTA’s existing network. The FrontLines 2015 projects were completed more than two years ahead of schedule and $300 million under budget last August, with the opening of the Blue TRAX Line extension from Sandy to Draper.
