UTA Frontrunner

In 2012, a commuter rail line known as the UTA FrontRunner was completed through northern Utah County. The train stops at the Orem Central station which is located in southwest Orem. An Orem rider can travel south to Provo City, north to Salt Lake City, or even further north to Ogden City. UTA buses connect to the station and provide riders access to other Orem locations.

With the completion of the FrontRunner commuter rail line and the light rail line that connects to the Salt Lake International Airport, travel between Orem and the airport can be done by using mass transit.

A planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line that will cross Orem in an east/west direction along University Parkway will connect to the Orem Central Station in the near future.
