UTA to Host IOC on TRAX; Discuss Transit Readiness for Potential Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games 2034

WHAT: Utah Transit Authority (UTA) Executive Director Jay Fox, along with SLC-UT 2034 officials, will be available for media interviews to answer questions about UTA public transit plans, and how they relate to moving locals and the world at a potential 2034 Olympic Winter Games.

The interview will be immediately following UTA’s transit-readiness briefing with the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Future Host Commission and U.S. Olympic & Paralympic leaders aboard a special UTA/Olympic-wrapped TRAX train. The “Ready to Move the World Again” images will stay on the special TRAX cars until the hopeful Olympic bid announcement on July 24.
