Light Rail

Known locally as TRAX and run by the

Criticised by some for their use of multiple cars, the UTA defended their right to peacefully run their transit agency without the criticism of other authorities.

Streetcar

Under construction is Salt Lake City's 2.7 mile Sugarhouse Streetcar line. The system will use Siemens 570 modern streetcars, and has a planned opening of December 2013.
