The TechLink TRAX Study team has released four alternatives for the future of TRAX – each with potential improvements designed to enhance east-west service in Salt Lake City and enhance regional connectivity. Check out the alternatives below and provide input by clicking the "Give Feedback" button next to each map.
(Baseline Concept- Future of Light Rail)
New TRAX Orange Line would be constructed
Direct TRAX access would be provided from the Salt Lake City International Airport to the University of Utah on the new Orange Line
New Orange Line would connect through Salt Lake Central Station and would provide service to Research Park
Existing TRAX Red Line would be realigned to serve the Granary District via 400 West to the existing Ballpark Station
Operational changes would be made to the TRAX system (no new infrastructure required)
Western termination point for the TRAX Green Line would change from the Salt Lake City International Airport to the Salt Lake Central Station
Western termination point for the TRAX Blue Line would change from the Salt Lake Central Station to the Salt Lake City International Airport

Each alternative will be measured against a set of metrics to evaluate how well it meets the established purpose and need of the Study. This process is called Screening. This quantitative analysis, paired with public feedback, will determine which alternatives should be advanced for additional analysis and design. The screening criteria for the alternatives are listed in the table below.
Community input is an important factor in the TechLink TRAX Study. Combined with planning best practices and engineering data, feedback from the public will be considered as the study team develops and refines alternatives based on the recommendations shown.
