The Union-TRAX route, completed in January of 2018, bisects campus from north to south and links the Business Loop roadway to the Union Building, providing faster service between these two major campus destinations. The electric shuttle will operate on this route from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every weekday and is carefully timed to arrive shortly after trains arrive at the South Campus Drive TRAX station.
Commuters can follow the electric shuttle route on Commuter Services’ live shuttle tracker, noting its mauve-colored path.
For additional information, please visit the Commuter Services website or call 801-581-6415.

- Use school code 003675 on the FAFSA
