BIKES ON BUS AND RAIL
Every UTA bus is equipped with a bicycle rack and bicycles are allowed on the TRAX and FrontRunner trains. Employees can bicycle to the bus stop, TRAX and FrontRunner stations, or Park & Ride and combine the benefits of cycling with the convenience of transit.

Bicycle commuting is good business for you and your health. It reduces the number of automobile trips to and from work while promoting clean air, easing congestion and creating more livable communities.
Creating a "Friendly Facility" is a step towards encouraging your fellow employees to commute by bicycle. Your facility could include showers, lockers, covered-secure bike parking, and safety information.

Always ride with the direction of traffic.
Obey all traffic signs and signals.
Yield to pedestrians, especially if riding on side walks (not legal in the central business district in Salt Lake City.)
Use the correct signals.
Many cities have detailed bicycle maps showing the best cycling routes.
THE ROAD RESPECT TOUR
It's one of those lessons we all learned early on in life, like sharing is good. When you give respect, you get respect. And nowhere is that more true than on Utah's roads, where drivers and cyclists meet in potentially life-threatening situations thousands of times a day. The road respect program is dedicated to the idea of teaching both drivers and cyclists the rules of the road so that everyone respects everyones's space and everyone gets home safely today.
