Public transportation in Utah (rail, bus) is operated by these agencies:
- Amtrak® serves Green River, Helper, Provo and Salt Lake City via its California Zephyr℠ route (Chicago to San Francisco Bay Area)
- UTA serves the Wasatch Front
- Suntran serves St. George
- Park City Transit serves Park City
General mapping guidance
Transit mapping should follow the new Public Transport schema (v2) as described in Public_transport. This means, among other things:
- Separate route relations for each direction and route variant
- Two nodes for each bus stop, one indicating the stop position on the way using public_transport=stop_position, the other indicating the bus stop sign by the side of the road, including any amenities using public_transport=platform (even if there is no platform).
The Utah AGRC agency makes UTA transit routes and stops available as open data. An overview of the data available can be found here. There are no plans to import these data currently. (May 2018)
Utah Transit Authority (UTA)
UTA operates commuter rail (FrontRunner), light rail (TRAX), a streetcar/tram (S-Line) and bus service. For all of Utah's passenger trains (including the previous, Amtrak® and Tourism rail), see Utah/Railroads#Passenger_trains. Bus service is found in its own section below.

Local tagging conventions
We generally follow standard practices for bus route relations:
For UTA bus route naming, we adopt the following rules:
- We use the official route names as shown on the UTA Schedules pages for the name=* tag on the route_master=* relation. For example, UTA calls Route 3 '3rd Avenue', so that is what goes into the name=* tag on the route_master=* relation.
- To avoid duplication, we don't add names on the child routes.
This Overpass query will retrieve all bus route relations and masters in Utah.
