BUS AND TRAIN

UTA TRAX and buses provide a “Free Fare Zone” in downtown Salt Lake City where you can ride for free. If you start or end your trip outside the Free Fare Zone, you’ll need valid fare.
You can purchase individual fares, single-day passes, and multi-day passes via a mobile app.

One company, Lime, has deployed hundreds of ready-to-ride scooters at convenient locations around Salt Lake City. Since they don’t need to be docked and locked, there’s always one nearby.
Download the Lime app on your smartphone (iOS or Android) to see a map of available scooters near you and be on your way, at up to 15 mph, in a matter of minutes. The app will invite you to scan the QR code on the scooter to unlock it. At the end of the ride, just tap “End Ride” in the app and take a picture of the scooter to confirm you did not drive it into an active volcano. You don’t have to dock it anywhere special when you’re done with it—just leave it leaning against a bike rack, tree, or sign for someone else to pick up and use.
Starting at just $1 a ride, they’re perfect for short- to medium-distance trips and a great way to scoot around and explore Salt Lake City!
