TRAX and FrontRunner are offering some late trains to help New Year's revelers.
Trains on Saturday, New Year's Eve, will run on a regular Saturday schedule with additional late trains until after midnight.
The last blue line train to Sandy leaves Salt Lake Central station at 12:52 a.m. Sunday. The last green line train to West Valley City leaves Salt Lake Central at 1:02 a.m.
The last red line train to Daybreak leaves the Medical Center station at 12:21 a.m., but an additional red line train just to Central Pointe leaves Medical Center at 1:41 a.m.
The last FrontRunner to Ogden leaves Salt Lake Central at 1:07 a.m. Sunday. The last FrontRunner to Salt Lake City from Ogden leaves at 12:56 a.m.
After those early morning trains, no other FrontRunner, TRAX or bus service is offered on New Year's Day except for ski bus service to resorts in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons and Park City.
Also, no FrontRunner, TRAX or bus service will be offered on Monday except for the ski bus service to the canyons, Park City and also the Sundance ski resort.
Utah Transit Authority spokesman Gerry Carpenter said little service is offered on Monday because it is a federally observed holiday, so UTA figured ridership would be low and it made a budget decision not to offer service. It had offered service the day after Christmas, he said, because it is traditionally a big shopping day and UTA figured ridership would be higher.
