NEW Mid-Jordan TRAX Line! Safety Tips & GIVEAWAY! -CLOSED-


Did you see the article in the Salt Lake Tribune today on the NEW Mid-Jordan TRAX line?  They let us bloggers try it out.  It's really nice!  You can see my husband in the dark green shirt and my daughter holding her bag. :)  I was blocked :(  Anyway...

Just prior to opening on Wednesday, August 3, the public can ride the new Mid-Jordan and West Valley lines too. UTA is partnering with the Utah Food Bank to “let food be your fare” that day; those boarding at one of the new stations will be encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item.  Rides will begin at 9:00 a.m. and both lines will offer 15-minute service for the entire day in addition to other festivities at the stations.

The new TRAX line opens on August 7th.  Here are some safety rules for kids and parents to be aware of:

·         Always expect a train is traveling down the track
·         Be alert
·         Watch for trains in both directions
·         Cross the track on at designated crossings
·         Never, never walk on the track
·         Don’t play near the tracks
·         Observe and follow all safety markings and signals

I would be lazy and ride the whole two stops to the library. Maybe even go downtown or check out the hub. If I'm really brave we might even take Frontrunner just to ride.
We want to take the FrontRunner to Ogden and go to the TreeHouse Museum. I hear it's great!

My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco.
