My Husband has always been a huge fan of public transportation. We only have one car so to have me be able to drive the kids to school during the day, he takes the bus to work and whenever we are going somewhere that TRAX can take us to we frequently do.
So when I got the chance to take my family on the first public ride of the new Mid Jordan TRAX line we took it.
My girls right away loved their goody bags that had adorable train hats and whistles in them. The signs and treats were also cute and made the ride that much more enjoyable. I also liked that safety rules were addressed right away such as to always be alert and to cross the track only at designated crossings
The new trax train we rode in was really nice. Very roomy. My girls were very comfortable and loved watching out the big window when they were not fighting about which flavor of taffy in there goody bag was the best of course . (There is always drama about something)
The Mid Jordan line runs from a station across the street from Historic Gardner Village to Daybreak. Since there is so many fun things opening up at Daybreak I now love the option to be able to take TRAX.
The Mid Jordan line will officially open to the public on Aug 7th. On August 3rd before the official public opening UTA is having a “Let food be your Fare” day where you are encouraged to bring a can of food for the Utah food bank to ride the new Mid Jordan Red line and West Valley green line at one of the new stations of trax for free. There will be activities throughout the stations on these new lines as well. That sounds like a lot of fun to me.

I also have a free trax pass good for up to 4 people for one round trip good for all forms of UTA transit during the month of August up for grabs. (Children 6 and under ride free) If you are interested please comment below. I will choose a random comment on Friday July 29th and I will mail it out quick so you can put it to good use.
