The frontrunner is constantly late. They don't care that people have made this their main source of transportation to and from work. They take no responsibility for being late, they offer no discounted fair for being late. They also don't run on Sunday. Big surprise....More

I decided to take the train back to Salt Lake City from Orem. The train runs every hour on Saturday and is smooth and quite and is very well kept. The Train attendant gave me directions to the Airport. Very Fast Train.

Given this a train that runs on a specific schedule, the times are convenient and the time to travel from SLC to the South end of the line is fast. The stations are clean and easy to navigate. And the price is low. Cars are...More
