Canyons — Getting there and around

By air: The drive from the Salt Lake City International Airport to Park City takes 45 minutes. Ground transportation makes frequent trips between the airport and Park City. Providers include Lewis Brothers Stages (800-826-5844; 649-2256); Park City Transportation (800-637-3803; 649-8567); and All Resort Express (800-457-9457; 649-3999). If you arrive without reservations, go to the transportation counter at the airport and you’ll ride on the next available van. Call 48 hours in advance for Park City-to-airport reservations.

By car: Park City is 36 miles east of Salt Lake City, by I-80 and Utah Hwy. 224.


Getting around: If you’re staying close to the town center or near a stop on the free bus line, you can do without a rental car. The town bus system has five routes with service every 20 minutes, if not more frequently, from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. If you take a side trip to one of the Cottonwood Canyons ski resorts, Lewis Brothers Stages and Park City Transportation have shuttles. Lewis Brothers offers a Canyon Jumper package to Solitude and Snowbird, including transportation and lift ticket. Prepay the evening before you wish to ski.
