Visitors to LDS General Conference are encouraged to carpool or use public transportation because parking is limited in the downtown area.

The Utah Transit Authority is offering extra and more frequent TRAX trains before and after conference sessions. Riders are encouraged to buy round-trip tickets to reduce waits at ticket dispensers on their return trips.

Also, a UTA group pass is available that allows up to four people to ride round trip for $13.50 on TRAX and buses, compared to the standard fare of $2.25 per person for a one-way ticket.

The LDS Church says limited public parking is available at Regent Street Parking, 119 S. Regent St. (50 East); at the EnergySolutions Arena lot, between 200 West and 300 West on North Temple; and at the West Office Building, off 200 West just north of North Temple.

The church says disability parking is located at the West Temple Overflow just north of North Temple. Its entrance is accessible when traveling south on West Temple. Some other area commercial garages also have parking available.

The church also says conference attendees should avoid parking in front of homes in downtown residential areas. Cars parked on neighborhood streets may be ticketed or towed at the owner's expense.
