The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) provides a public transportation system in the Salt Lake Valley, serving Salt Lake City and many of its suburbs. In the heart of Downtown Salt Lake City, there is a “Free Fare Zone” that conference attendees may utilize during the convention. Passengers may ride for free when entering and exiting a fixed-route bus, paratransit vehicle or TRAX light rail train within the boundaries of the Free Fare Zone. Passengers will not be asked to provide proof of payment for using the system unless they enter or exit outside of the zone, and there is no limit on the amount of times the Free Fare Zone can be utilized.
It’s easy and convenient to take advantage of this free transportation, especially in the snowy winter months Utah is famous for. When boarding, simply tell the driver you intend to stay in the zone to ride without charge. To see where the zone begins and ends, click here.
The Free Fare Zone is an excellent tool for designing and personalizing a visit to Salt Lake City, because it encompasses countless restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues. Many of Salt Lake’s most popular attractions are within the zone, including The Little America Hotel, where the conference will be held, and Temple Square, a key piece of Utah’s unique culture and history, and one of the most widely-visited places in the state.
