SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Transit Authority is offering additional service for events this Saturday.
The day will feature the Salt Lake City Marathon, Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience, University of Utah spring football game and other events. Parking at many downtown venues will be limited due to the number of people attending festivities that day.
UTA officials recommend using the online trip planner to find the fastest route to a location. The trip planner will take into account extra trips and early service scheduled for Saturday.
Also available is the group pass, which allows up to four people to ride FrontRunner, TRAX and buses to and from events for just $15 after 8:30 a.m.
