Carbon County was recently approached by the Salt Lake Express bus line with an opportunity for community members to have a way to get to and from Salt Lake City twice a day.
Commissioner Larry Jensen explained the route possibility during the commission’s meeting held Wednesday night. He stated that this is a new bus company that leaves downtown Salt Lake City (SLC) starting at 10:10.
This bus stops at the Salt Lake Airport before disembarking and arriving in Price at 1:05 p.m. Commissioner Jensen stated that, if desired, a customer may continue by bus to Blanding, arriving at 4:30 p.m.
A bus route also leaves SLC in the afternoon at 4:25 PM and runs the same route, stopping in Price at 7:20 PM This provides the same option to Blanding and back to SLC.
A trip from Price to SLC departs daily from Price at 6:55 AM and would arrive in SLC at 9:50 AM. Moving on, a bus leaves the area at 1:05 PM and arrives in Salt Lake at 4:00 PM.
Commissioner Jensen said they are trying to get the word out and the bus line could connect to other cities, such as Las Vegas, cities in Idaho and more.
