Utah Transit Authority
Utah Transit Authority (UTA) provides commuter rail, light rail, bus service, and vanpools in Ogden and along the Wasatch Front. Maps and schedules, as well as information about fare card and discount fare programs, are available at www.rideuta.com
Commuter rail service connects downtown Ogden to many other communities along the Wasatch Front, including Salt Lake City and Provo. The trains are clean, comfortable, and reliable. Frontrunner offers a great way of getting to Salt Lake City for a Jazz game, concert, or day of shopping – without the hassle and cost of parking.
Ogden is well-served by UTA’s robust bus service. Commonly used bus routes include routes along Washington Blvd. and Monroe Blvd., intercity service to Salt Lake City and Brigham City, and service from the Frontrunner station to Weber State University. Routes also serve some of Ogden’s major employment centers, such as Business Depot Ogden.
Ogden is now connected by bus to two world-class ski resorts: Snowbasin and Powder Mountain. The ski bus offers a great alternative to driving, especially in bad weather or when your kids want to hit the slopes with their friends. The ski bus makes our great mountains even more accessible.
Bicycle Lanes and Trails
Ogden has an extensive system of bike lanes and trails, providing a great opportunity for active transportation around town. Ogden is the only community in Utah that has been designated as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. The designation is thanks to Ogden’s 16 miles of shared-use paths, 18 miles of natural paths, and low speed limits on most streets. Six new bicycle repair stations were installed around town in 2014.
