The agency says it will add five special direct trains from Draper to the stadium prior to the game. All the Red line trains and special direct trains will be four cars long.

If you are just in the downtown are there will be special direct buses from Salt Lake Central to Rice-Eccles Stadium. UTA also says it will have buses at near Trax stations at 400 South to supplement train capacity to the stadium.

The agency also will be beefing up services post game as well. The contest is expected to end roughly around 9:30 p.m. So trains at the end of the game will be four cars long heading to Draper and to Daybreak as well.

They will continue to have special direct buses following the contest going from the stadium to Salt Lake Central Station staged on University Street (1400 E) just north of South Campus Drive (400 South).
