Please be aware of changes that will affect anyone using UTA to commute to and from work.
UTA is changing its schedules on April 8, 2018.
Due to the implementation of federally-mandated Positive Train Control (safety measures established by the U.S. Department of Transportation) requirements on its commuter rail system, UTA will be adjusting its FrontRunner schedule. This change requires UTA to make scheduling adjustments throughout its system in order to preserve connections and transfers. As a result, all TRAX schedules and nearly all bus schedules will be adjusted starting April 8.
More information is available here. In addition, UTA’s Trip Planner and Customer Service department are available to assist you in planning your trip so that you can be prepared to get where you need to go when the changes take effect.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming change day:
Where can see if my route is changing?
Check UTA’s change day schedule or see UTA’s change day details page. Changes will be available individual route pages. Change day information will be listed in the upper right hand corner of each route page.
When will changes take place?
Changes will be implemented on Sunday, April 8, 2018.
Why are so many routes changing?
UTA is implementing Positive Train Control (PTC). This federally-required safety system ensures that trains stop at designated locations and prevents them from reaching excessive speeds or entering unauthorized portions of track. Implementing PTC means that it will take FrontRunner slightly more time to travel between Provo and Ogden. Schedules for most bus routes and all three TRAX lines will change to ensure that they still coordinate with FrontRunner schedules.
How do I get help figuring out the new schedules or planning a trip?
Schedules will change to accommodate the new Positive Train Control system. Click here for details.
Schedules for all three TRAX lines will change to improve reliability and align with new FrontRunner schedules. The S-Line’s schedule will not change. Click here for details.
