In August of 2019, Salt Lake City partnered with the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) to launch three increased span and frequency bus routes along 200 South (Route 2), 900 South (Route 9), and 2100 South (Route 21) in Salt Lake City. This marked the implementation of the first phase of the new Frequent Transit Network (FTN), with 15-minute or better frequency from Monday to Saturday, as well as late night 30 minute service, Sunday service, and a direct east-west connection.

Through service enhancements, capital improvements, and transit pass programs, Salt Lake City and UTA continue to invest in better transit access citywide.

Bus Stop and Service Improvements

Salt Lake City, in partnership with UTA, has been making bus stop improvements across the City. The primary purpose of the changes to existing bus stops is to make them accessible to all riders, including people with disabilities. Future changes will vary by location but typically include replacement of sidewalk panels and new concrete pads with the addition of shelters, benches, trash cans, bike racks, and lighting – all to make the riding experience better!

Phase 1 (2020-2021)

The first phase focused on making improvements on the following existing bus stops and routes in Salt Lake City:

  • South Temple: 200 East to Virginia St (Route 206, Route 209)

  • 500 East: 300 South to 2500 South (Route 205)

  • 2100 South: West Temple to 2100 East (Route 21)

  • 2100 East: 2100 South to Foothill Blvd (Route 21)

Phase 2 (2022)

The second phase focused on making improvements on the following corridors as the new Route 1 and the improved Route 205 were implemented in August 2022:

  • 1000 North: Redwood Road to 900 West

  • 600 North: Redwood Road to 900 West

  • 900 West: 1000 North to North Temple

  • Downtown: various locations

  • Foothill Blvd: near Sunnyside Avenue

  • Redwood Road: North Temple to 600 North

Phase 3 (2023)

Phase 3 (2023) focused on making improvements on the following existing bus stops and routes in Salt Lake City:

Westside Transit Improvements

The new Westside routes (Route 1 and the reconfigured 205) started running in August 2022 after the new bus stops were in place. This new high-frequency service on Route 1 is part of Salt Lake City’s Frequent Transit Network (FTN) bus routes—designed to provide faster connections and direct east-west service to destinations and employment centers like the University of Utah, Downtown SLC, and better connect to the regional transit system. Learn more in the Frequent Transit Network (FTN) dropdown.

Salt Lake City’s First Citywide Transit Plan

As outlined in the Salt Lake City Transit Master Plan, the three original Frequent Transit Network routes (2, 9, & 21) were the first phase in creating Salt Lake City’s first Frequent Transit Network. New FTN routes will shift from the current hub and spoke system to a system that more closely matches the city’s grid street network. This will improve connections to other bus routes and provide transit access everywhere in the city with just one transfer. This was the first step of many in creating a transit system that will work for everyone in the city, and new FTN routes will continue to be added over the coming years.
