Established in 1970, UTA has become a multi-modal transportation leader that is 100-percent accessible with 69 light rail vehicles, 30 commuter rail cars and more than 600 buses. UTA’s TRAX light rail system is currently averaging more than 58,300 riders a day along its 15-mile Salt Lake-Sandy line and the 4-mile University Line.

Today, UTA’s service area is over 1,400 square miles and covers six counties: Box Elder, Davis, Salt Lake, Tooele, Utah and Weber.

UTA is governed by a 19-member Board of Trustees that continually directs agency staff to improve public transit along the Wasatch Front. Trustees are appointed by the city and county governments that fund UTA with a local option sales tax. Board members work with their appointing local representatives to direct UTA so the agency can best meet the needs of individual communities.
