The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) today marks 20 years of operation of the TRAX light-rail service.
In 1998, UTA opened its first rail station in Midvale, Utah, and received delivery of its first fleet of Siemens SD100 trains. By 1999, the first light-rail line opened to connect riders between Salt Lake City and Sandy.
Now, TRAX operates on three lines along 44 miles of track, serves 50 stations and has 114 rail cars.
To date, 283.4 million people have traveled using the light-rail system, UTA officials said a press release.
