Located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains thirteen miles south of Salt Lake City, Sandy City provides an evenhanded approach to traffic congestion and growth issues using a public transportation system that utilizes commuter trains, buses, and light-rail to provide you with access to the airport and all the way up to the ski resorts.
Sandy City is Serviced by the UTA bus system that provides over 100 routes to neighboring cities along with commuter trains and a light rail system.
Commuter trains, called FrontRunner, provide transportation access from Sandy north to Ogden and south to Provo, with limited stops along the way.
Light-rail lines, called TRAX, provide access from Sandy to Downtown and across the valley on three color-coded lines.
Buses provide connecting service at many of the TRAX and FrontRunner stations to get you almost anywhere in the Greater Salt Lake Area. Bus routes can be found across the Salt Lake Valley, Ogden, Utah County and up to Brigham City. There is also a connecting bus route to Park City (which has its own transit system). During ski season, UTA provides ski bus access up Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons to Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude.
The major residential region of eastern Sandy climbs high on the slopes of the Wasatch Range while the western section lies at the bottom of the valley. Interstate 15 and State Street (U.S. 89) run through the western portions of the city which provide adequate and easy routes to the surrounding suburbs.
Sandy City is also Serviced by the UTA bus system that provides over 100 routes to neighboring cities.
Sandy City's roads, along with public and private transportation, provide the city with ideal transportation conditions.
