2022-2023 UTA Ski Bus Service Changes and Alta Town and Resort Shuttle Updates

Due to driver shortages, the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) Ski Bus Service to Alta has been reduced to Route 994 only. Buses will run every 30 minutes. The only Alta bus stop in service this winter will be the Wildcat/Goldminer's Daughter Lodge Parking Lot via SR 210. Route 994 will not travel along the Alta Bypass Road unless the Hellgate-Superior section of SR 210 is closed. Service runs from December 11th, 2022 through April 15, 2023.

How can bus riders access lodges along SR 210 and the Albion Base Area? The Alta Town and Resort Shuttle is free of charge and will meet bus riders at the UTA Goldminer's Daughter bus stop to transport riders to the lodges and the Albion Base Area.  The Shuttle will also bring bus riders back down-canyon from Albion base area to the UTA Goldminer's Daughter bus stop in order to catch the 994 to the Salt Lake Valley. The Alta Town and Resort Shuttle will service residents and guests on the Alta Bypass Road, stopping at the UTA Cliff Lodge bus stop as well as the UTA stop along the Bypass Road.

The Shuttle will operate on a schedule that will be posted online and at the Wildcat and Albion bus stops.
