Lately prospective students have been asking about the quality of public transportation around the sugar house area so I figured that this would be a good opportunity to talk about it. UTA( Utah transit authority) has been building new lines for the famous "Trax" system that currently runs through downtown Salt Lake. Trax is a lot more efficient then running buslines down busy streets. Up until recently, we have not been able to use trax as much in the sugar house area because the nearest line starts up at the university of Utah (4 miles away). The current plans for the trax growth includes adding a line to sugar house and naming it the "streetcar". This "streetcar" will open up a lot of UTA options for Westminster students and it is schedule to start operating a year from now! Here's the link for the streetcar http://www.rideuta.com/mc/?page=Projects-SugarHouseStreetCar.
