The Salt Lake Valley is home to one of America's
newer light rail systems, Utah Transit Authority's TRAX. There are
two routes in operation. Both lines run together for seven stations
through center city, with a terminal at Salt Lake Central Station.
The earlier and much
longer Sandy/Salt Lake Line (also known as the North/South Line) then
heads generally south to the suburb of Sandy. Route length is
about sixteen miles. The newer and very different University Line goes
less than five miles, generally east and
up through the University of Utah campus.
is along Main St., and shows a train from Sandy entering the
Gallivan Plaza station, the first joint stop inbound.
