Salt Lake City has a robust public transportation system that utilizes commuter trains, buses, and light-rail to provide you with access from the airport all the way up to the University of Utah.
Light-rail lines, called TRAX, provide access to Downtown from across the valley on three color-coded lines. Downtown Salt Lake provides a great transfer point as all the lines run through downtown.
You can take the Red Line on Trax from downtown that will drop you off at the Fort Douglas stop and it’s a short walk to the Alumni House.

There are buses that run from downtown up 200 South – Bus #2 will get from most places downtown. It will take you all the way up to the University and drop you off at the corner on North Campus Drive (Kennecott stop), where it is a short walk to the Alumni House.
Of course, Uber and Lyft are always options and we have a great system here.
UTA offers route and transit information in a variety of languages through its interpreter program. This program is available by phone. Call 801-743-3822 (801-RIDE-UTA) or call toll-free 888-743-3822.
Salt Lake City is laid out in a grid and is easy to get around once you understand it.
