TRAX and Bus Route Changes Scheduled for Saturday

(KCPW News) TRAX and bus riders should be aware of changes to system routes tomorrow in anticipation of the Salt Lake City Marathon. The Red Line to the University of Utah will be shut down across State Street during the race from approximately 7 A.M. to 1 P.M.  UTA Spokesman Gerry Carpenter says it will still run from daybreak into downtown, but will continue to the Salt Lake Central Station instead of the university.

“And anyone who wants to make that connection will need to walk from library station to courthouse station,” he says. “We’ll have paratransit buses available for disabled passengers who can’t make a walking bridge.”

Carpenter says bus routes will also be affected.

“We have a number of routes on detour,” he says. “Some routes in the valley won’t even begin until after the race is over. So probably the best thing is to recommend that people go to our website and check out which routes are being affected because it varies from route to route.”
