Transportation

Salt Lake City is one of North America’s most accessible destinations due to an award-winning airport and the fact that it’s just a 13-minute drive from downtown.  Salt Lake City International Airport is one of the West's major hubs, served by 10 airlines and their affiliates offering over 625+ scheduled flights per day to/from 96 non-stop destinations. It is also closer to the city it serves than nearly any other airport. Find out more about the airport.

TRAX light rail is the most affordable and convenient way to get downtown from the airport--a 20-minute ride takes you into the heart of Salt Lake. At just $2.50 each way, the 'Green Line' is quick, simple, and a great way to save some money. Just head to the south end of Terminal 1, purchase your pass, and board the train--which departs every 15 minutes.  Weekday service begins at 5:30 am and runs until 11:30 pm. Find out more about Salt Lake's public transportation, including schedules and maps, at rideuta.com

Another option is a shared-ride van like SuperShuttle, or Express Shuttle. A number of share-ride services operate from the airport, and prices are approximately $15 one-way.

If you're looking for a fun and quick way to get around downtown, don't pass up the opportunity for a bike taxi ride--complete with music and good conversation.
