TRAX Light Rail System is very easy to navigate and inexpensive. The conference hotels are a 13-minute drive from the airport, but the TRAX is only 20 minutes. At just $2,50 each way, the “Green Line” is quick, simple, and a great way to save money. Just head to the south end of Terminal 1, purchase your pass from the kiosk and board the train which departs every 15 minutes. And, seniors are half price! It’s clean, safe and reliable. The hotels are a five-minute walk from the rail line. Take the Gallivan Plaza station for the Hilton and the City Center Station for the Marriott.
Another option is a shared-ride van like SuperShuttle, or Express Shuttle. A number of share-ride services operate from the airport, and prices are approximately $15 one-way. For private van or car service, the prices increase to anywhere from $35 to more than $150.
You can also arrange pick-up and transportation from the airport to your final designation via Uber or Lyft, both of which freely operate throughout the Salt Lake valley and beyond. The airport surcharge is minimal, up to just $1.89.
And, of course, there’s the traditional taxi option. One note, however: due to the deregulation of ground transportation fares, it is strongly recommended you discuss and agree upon the rate before the taxi departs the curb. Taxi service to the downtown area, including the Salt Palace Convention Center, should cost no more than $25.
