SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Transit Authority announced an increase in TRAX service for the upcoming FanX at Salt Lake Comic Convention at the Salt Palace this weekend.

On Thursday and Friday UTA will have longer trains on all TRAX lines. Passengers can catch a train every fifteen minutes on all of them as well.

On Saturday the Blue Line heading north will run every 10 minutes for riders from 8 am to 10 pm and UTA will provide longer trains. For those trying to get there or leave before or after those hours, the service will run every 20 minutes.The timing for southbound trains will alternate between 5 and 15 minutes to average 10. The department’s officials say they cannot predict exact 10 minutes due to traffic signals and other TRAX lines.

The department will also have more cars on the Green Line, but will run only every 20 minutes. The agency says the Red Line will have regular services all day every 20 minutes.
