Safe Traveling Tips, Guidelines, & Procedures

Your Safety Is Our Top Priority

The safety of our riders will always be our number one priority. We take into account all facets of safety as well. This includes the quality of our vehicle, the cleanliness of the interior, and even your comfortability. The reason we include comfort is because we know that when you feel comfortable you can relax more. That feeling allows you to be more at ease and therefore, more safe.

The intention of this information is not to lecture or command. Rather, to educate and provide viable options for you, our riders. Know that every decision we make we do so with you in mind. The following content has been created so that you may be able to return and reference the website.

Tips For Safe Travel

Since you are not operating the vehicle that you’ll be riding in, safety doesn’t look like it traditionally does in transportation. Here are few good tips to consider when traveling with Salt Lake Express:

  1. Make sure that you know and understand your route. This will provide an layer of safety that isn’t seen, but felt. Knowing where you’re going and what stops are made along your route adds a level of assurance and confidence in travel.
  2. Be mindful and aware of your own health. If there’s a positive thing that came out of the pandemic, it’s that we might be more considerate of our own health and how it can impact those around us. While you are no longer required to wear a mask or face covering on public transportation anymore, it’s good to protect others if you do feel under the weather. Our riders are welcome to continue to wear masks if they feel more comfortable doing so.
  3. Listen. Always listen to your bus driver when it comes to safety. Our drivers are well-trained and knowledgeable. They know the best and safest procedures and guidelines to follow when transporting groups of people on the road.

How We’re Ensuring Safe Travel

Our latest campaign, titled Nicer, Newer, Friendlier, Cleaner, emphasizes all the ways that we are going above and beyond when it comes to taking care of you and our vehicles. We have only produced the first two videos so far, but you can learn more by watching them below.

Guidelines & Logistical Procedures

Departure Times for Shuttle Locations

We suggest that you be at the departure location 10-15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time. We reserve the right to depart locations on time to avoid shuttle delays.

Allow Enough Time at the Airport

Airports and airlines request that you be at the airport 2 hours before your scheduled departure time for domestic flights and 2-3 hours for flights outside the United States. This suggested time allowance will vary with time of day, season, weather and airport security level. You may need more time during peak travel periods. Airlines reserve the right to close the doors to the aircraft up to 20 minutes prior to their scheduled departure. The airlines departure time means DEPARTURE TIME – not boarding time.

After everyone has boarded the aircraft, it requires another 15 minutes before they finish their checks and depart. Part of the airlines concern is that you allow enough time to get to the airport. You must also take into account possible shuttle delays. We strive hard to be on-time, and are always looking at ways to maintain a good “on-time record,” however, there are many things that can delay the shuttle. (See “Terms & Conditions” – #18) Salt Lake Express cannot guarantee any times any more than the airlines are able to guarantee times. Nearly all missed flights have resulted when passengers have allowed less than one (1) hour at the airport. Be a smart traveler by allowing enough time.

Shuttle Luggage Space

We plan on a reasonable amount of luggage on each shuttle. If you will have more than two (2) suitcases and a carry on, you need to call the office to make sure we will have room. If you show up with more than this, we will accept it on a space available basis. Also, you may be charged $10.00 per suitcase or box over the two (2) suitcases allowed.

Pick-Up/Drop-Off at Other Locations

If you desire to make a reservation to/from a location that is not listed on the website, please call the office to make sure it is available. To help keep our shuttles “on time” we need to manage “extra stops.” Also, there is an additional stop charge for any stop that is not listed and this charge may vary. If you make your reservation online and put in the notes that you want a different stop, that request will not be honored until you contact the office, make arrangements, and pay any additional fee.

Mask Mandate Dropped

Holiday Travel with Salt Lake Express

Are you a homesick student? Or perhaps it’s been forever since you’ve visited your extended family. To many people, the holiday season represents a time to come together. To celebrate relationships and enjoy the end of the year. However, getting home for the holidays can be a challenge. If you’re unfamiliar with winter travel you may not feel comfortable traveling home. But fear not. No matter how far you go, Salt Lake Express is here to help with all the ways we help with holiday travel.

Travel to Utah or Idaho

Saint_George_Shuttle_Service

We have routes all throughout Idaho and Utah. Traveling is as simple as picking your destination. The most popular route goes from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake. However, the bus does stop in towns along the way. If you are traveling from Idaho to Utah, or vice versa, you need to think about the weather. Utah and Idaho weather is often similar, however Utah can be slightly warmer. In the winter, your best bet is to pack for cold weather either way. If you travel to St George, you have the option to get dropped off at your door. Which can come in handy if you’re hoping to save time.

Travel to Nevada

Getting to and from Las Vegas is simple and affordable with our shuttles.

Salt Lake Express has several popular routes from Utah to Nevada. The most popular destinations lie near Las Vegas, but there are several other options. If you do travel from Utah to Nevada, planning for weather is key. Nevada weather often reaches the 70s in the winter, while Utah rests below freezing. You’ll want to dress warm for the trip, but have layers you can remove as it gets warmer. Pack for warm weather, but bring a light jacket just in case. Pack a swimsuit in case you want to enjoy warm weather at it’s fullest. Once you’re packed and ready to go, you can relax and enjoy the show of Christmas lights and Vegas neon.

Travel to Wyoming or Montana

We have several routes if you’re traveling to Wyoming or Montana, most being to Yellowstone or Jackson Hole. You’ll need to prepare for very cold weather if you’re traveling that far north. You’ll want to pack heavy clothing for your trip. Especially if you’re planning any outdoor activities or ventures. Bring a large suitcase to carry sweaters, pants, and thermals. Dress appropriately for travel. Check weather conditions for Wyoming and Montana before you leave. Bring extra layers in your carry-on bag to add as you travel and wear a heavy coat that is easy to remove on the bus. Your coat can double as a pillow if you’re hoping to sleep on the bus. If you can, bring an extra dry, warm pair of clothes, just in case.

Further Travel

Salt Lake City's international airport
The Salt Lake International Airport has become a major hub connecting the mountainous West with the rest of the world.

If you’re traveling further east, you’ll need to travel by airplane. However, bus travel can help you save on gas and airport parking. Salt Lake Express provides transport to airports in Utah, Idaho, Nevada, and Wyoming. Simply pick the one closest to you and we can get you to the destination. But if you are planning to travel by plane, you’ll need to plan how you pack. Most airports have a weight limit for your luggage. The standard limit comes to around 50 pounds per suitcase. Salt Lake Express allows you to bring two suitcases, but you can pay an additional fee if you need to bring more. However, additional baggage fees can add up. If you’re only traveling for the holidays, try limiting yourself to one suitcase. It’s a good idea to leave with one suitcase, then return with two after the holidays.

Check out the closest stop to your destination.

Travel Stops & Photo Ops Along Salt Lake Express Routes

Photo Ops Along Our Routes

At Salt Lake Express, we’ve seen every corner of the west from Vegas to Yellowstone. But, there’s always a new way to see things. For example, going cross country in a bus provides unique travel photo ops that most people miss. Which is why we’re here to highlight the few exceptional spots and remind you of new ways to capture them!

Antler Arch – Jackson Wyoming

Salt Lake Express travelers can’t miss the chance to take a shot under the famous Antler Archway in Jackson. Directly in the town square, Jackson’s archways are built from real elk antlers. Visitors to George Washington Memorial park in Jackson have the opportunity to snap a pic under each of the four archways. Families near Jackson line up for family portraits and photos. For any traveler, the archways provide a great place to for some quick travel photo ops.

Boise Idaho – Kathryn Albertson Park

Travelers can find this park off Americana Boulevard near the Boise River. Builders designed the park to attract wildlife which makes it a great place to capture nature shots! Most of the park is off limits to dogs and vehicles so be prepared to do a lot of walking. But travelers to this park can find opportunities for pictures of deer, turtles, birds, and other wildlife. The park is a can’t miss for photographers and a great place to go even if you’re just out to look.

Idaho Falls – The Falls

It’s ironic how many people visit or drive through Idaho Falls every day, but never go to visit the actual falls. This section of the Snake River is amazing. Smack in the middle of downtown Idaho Falls, the view of the river is spectacular. As an added bonus, next to the falls lies the Japanese Friendship Gardens. The gardens are filled with cherry trees and traditional style Japanese architecture that add character to the scenery. I’ve gotten some great shots from this part of Idaho Falls. The LDS temple is across the street from the river. It’s a fun challenge to get both the falls and the temple in one shot.

Salt Lake City – Temple Square & Architecture

salt lake express activities 1

Utah travelers probably know the majority of the sights Salt Lake has to offer. But, from a photography standpoint you can see these sights with new eyes. Take Temple Square for example. Most people who visit Utah will have seen it once or twice. Maybe they’ve seen the lights for Christmas. But, what if you took up the challenge to get a new outstanding shot of the temple at night or with the Christmas lights? That adds a layer of interest to your visit. There are several different areas in Salt Lake with great architecture. You just need to find a unique angle for your shot. On your next trip, try going up to the top floor of one of the Salt Lake buildings. That will give you a great new perspective.

Las Vegas – The Strip

Most Salt Lake Express travelers headed to Vegas are traveling to the airport. But, if you plan your trip well you could have several hours before your flight for travel photo ops of the Vegas strip. People recognize Las Vegas for its lively and energized atmosphere. On your trip to Vegas, we’d suggest getting some shots of people in action. Try to capture the fast paced feel of Vegas. If you’re down for a challenge, try to get a unique shot of the neon strip. Look for a new angle or perspective that can really stand out against the usual shots of the city.

Yellowstone – Grand Prismatic Overlook & Old Faithful

These geysers are known worldwide for a reason! They are outstandingly beautiful and a great shot of a geyser is breathtaking. However, most travelers settle for a simple shot over the viewing area. For photographers and the adventurous traveler, we’d suggest taking a hike to a more interesting vantage point. However, be aware of the wildlife and prepare so that you’re as safe as possible on your trip. Bears live in Yellowstone. Shots of wildlife are interesting, but you should never put yourself at risk. So, take every precaution. Alert park rangers of where you are going and don’t wander from the designated trails.

Planning For Your Road Trip With Salt Lake Express

Must-Haves for Every Road Trip Warrior

I’m something of a cross country, road trip traveler! I actually grew up in the back of a seven-passenger vehicle driving across the country for most of my life. And I know that there is a lot to remember when you’re planning a trip. After spending days and even weeks at a time driving in a car, I’ve become somewhat of a professional traveler. Which might help you out with your next trip on Salt Lake Express. The principles of cross country travel remain the same regardless of what vehicle you’re in. Here are some of the things I do to make my trips more comfortable.

Nutrition

healthy snacks on a road trip

Food and water come first in any travel situation. After long hours in close conditions, we all get understandably tired and hungry. Which is why you need to pack snacks and water beforehand. Salt Lake Express stops every few hours to fuel up, but you can’t rely on these stops alone. Most people will be in a rush for the bathroom during these stops. You don’t want to hold up the bus because you were trying to buy a gas station sandwich. I suggest you take a look at how long your trip will last and then pack enough snacks for at least two-thirds of the meals you’d usually have during that time. Also bring a medium sized refillable water bottle.

In addition, try to pack light and with easily disposable packaging so you’ll have more room in your carry-on after you eat. If you’re planning on taking a flight, make sure you eat all of your food before you leave the bus. You wouldn’t want to waste anything.

Comfort

The next tip I have for you involves maximizing your comfort throughout the trip. Make sure to wear travel clothes. These should be your most comfortable pair of clothes that are appropriate for the weather you are traveling in. Many of you will want a neck pillow to help you sleep sitting up right. I’ve never been able to sleep while traveling, but I’d suggest you bring one if you plan on getting some rest. For the men out there, take your wallet and phone out of your back pockets and store them either in your carry on or coat pocket. You’ll be sitting down for a long period of time and that wallet becomes death in your pocket after two hours! That small change will make the biggest difference in your comfort level.

Pack Light

Packing light increases your chances of being comfortable. Try to only pack one suitcase with all the essential clothes and toiletries you’ll need. You should have one pair of clothes for every day of your trip. But for a longer trip, try planning on doing laundry. For a long trip pack;

  • Four shirts, two regular and two formal
  • Three pairs of pants or bottoms, 2 casual and 1 formal
  • Two pairs of shoes (formal and non-formal)
  • Four pairs of socks
  • Underwear
  • Toiletries

All you need should be able to fit into a small to medium sized suitcase. Then bring a backpack or carry-on bag with the other essentials;

  • Food and water
  • One extra pair of clothes
  • Charger
  • Laptop
  • Headphones
  • Wallet
  • Keys
  • Pocket money
  • Phone

Fit these into your backpack as best you can. I suggest rolling the clothes into a bundle at the base of your backpack. And that is how you properly plan for your upcoming road trip. And don’t forget to frequently check saltlakeexpress.com for surprise sales and other promotional deals. You can also subscribe to our email where we regularly send out stellar discounts!

St. George Express Is Now Salt Lake Express

St. George Express is now Salt Lake Express

We decided to consolidate our two brands under one name. Moving forward there will no longer be the southern Utah-branded St. George Express, rather, everything will fall under our main name of Salt Lake Express.

There will be no changes in routes, schedules, or the booking system. Everything will continue to operate as it always has.

“Our riders will only experience two differences with this change,” said Jacob Price, owner of Salt Lake Express. “They will ride on a bus that says Salt Lake Express instead of St. George Express and they will experience even better customer service than before. We are more committed than ever to provide our riders with top tier service, especially during this complicated time.”

The pandemic has been tough on the the travel industry, which is why we wanted to hit the road running. As we reintroduce our brand to the southern Utah and Las Vegas communities we want to emphasize our commitment to providing the best possible customer service and most flexible routes and schedules.

We will host a grand reopening event that will take place in early October at our St. George office (805 S. Bluff St., St. George, UT 84790). Community members are encouraged to stop by and enjoy complimentary refreshments as well as guaranteed discounts on future bus fares.

As a company, Salt Lake Express operates routes all around St. George, as far south as Las Vegas, NV, and as far north as Great Falls, MT. We travel heavily along the I-15 corridor as well as I-86 and I-84 between southeast Idaho and Boise, ID. Offering routes to many getaway destinations including Jackson, WY, Sun Valley, ID, and of course St. George, UT and Las Vegas, NV.

For more information about the new name or the company contact Lisa Young at 800-356-9796 ext. 6145 or at lisa.young@saltlakeexpress.com. If you’re interested in booking a trip visit saltlakeexpress.com or call 800-356-9796.

Masks, Hand Sanitizer, Health Screenings, & More

How can we help you travel more confidently?

As we enter back into a realm of normalcy, we understand that it’s going to take some time. However, we’re here to help that process along. Our goal here at Salt Lake Express is to earn the trust of our travelers. Even if that takes a little time. In order to improve confidence among our travelers, we’re implementing the following practices on our buses.

Health Screenings

To ensure our riders’ safety on our end, we’re making sure that all of our drivers are taking necessary precautions. They will all receive a basic health screening before their shift. This will help us know if anyone is feeling ill or showing early signs of illness. If a driver is unfit, then a different driver will take their place.

We have and are considering screening our passengers. However, it is a large undertaking so at the current moment we are adhering to social distancing practices. We have scaled back the amount of passengers allowed on a single bus.

Hand Sanitizer

Along with health screenings and the current disinfecting practices employed, we are now offering hand sanitizer. To be direct, we know that it doesn’t matter how often we tell you that we clean our buses if you don’t see it happen with your own eyes. In order to help with this effort, we will provide hand sanitizer on our buses as well as cleaning wipes that you are able to wipe down your area with.

You will find the hand sanitizer near the passenger entry of each bus. This way you are able to use it before touching any surfaces on the bus.

Face Masks

Applying a face mask - step 1

In doing our part to continue to slow the spread, we have been providing masks for all travelers for weeks now. When used in accordance with CDC guidelines, face masks can be effective at helping slow the spread of the virus.

While our drivers and riders employ these safety standards combined with common sense, we believe our buses are a safe transportation option during this time. With the addition of these provided face masks in conjunction with the daily deep cleaning of our vehicles, we are prepared for people to start traveling again.

The CDC recommends wearing face masks in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

Social Distancing

We are able to accommodate social distancing whenever possible. What we mean by this is that it’s really difficult to have a true 6 foot separation on buses. We are social distancing by limiting capacity on our vehicles whenever possible. This will help to make way for better social distancing while riding one of our buses.

In sum, our goal is to continue to do everything in our power to ensure safety while traveling with us. We believe that by taking these measures we can help people begin to feel comfortable when resuming regular travel again.

Salt Lake Express’ Healthy Travel Procedures

We know and understand that the coronavirus is at the front of most people’s minds. We want to let everyone know that we are taking the necessary steps to ensure our riders safety is put first. Our talented and professional team of drivers, mechanics, customer service representatives, and management are all working hard to deliver the proper information to our loyal customers.

Salt Lake Express Will Provide Masks For Riders

We believe in traveling safely, both today and tomorrow. We also believe in safe travels in every way. Well-inspected and maintained buses, competent and trained drivers, and clean cabins with the addition of provided face masks.

In doing our part to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19, Salt Lake Express will be providing masks for all travelers. When used in accordance with CDC guidelines, face masks can be effective at helping slow the spread of the virus. Face masks should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of ones face and allow breathing without restriction.

While our drivers and riders employ these safety standards combined with common sense, we believe our buses are a safe transportation option during this time. With the addition of these provided face masks in conjunction with the daily deep cleaning of our vehicles, we are prepared for people to start traveling again.

A Message From Our Owner

Dear Rider,

As an integral member of the Salt Lake Express community, we value the trust you place in our team when you travel.

Considering the ongoing news about COVID-19, the coronavirus, we thought it would be a good idea to update you on the steps we are taking to ensure your health and safety in your travels.

We have recently implemented procedures to redouble our efforts to make sure the safety and well being of our passengers and our employees is uppermost in our minds.

We’ve done this with a two-step approach that we are implementing throughout our entire fleet. That approach is this:

  1. First, all of our drivers have been instructed and trained on wiping down and disinfecting all hard surfaces at the end of each leg of a trip. This is done in accordance with best industry practices.
  2. Then, at the completion of a trip, the buses are brought back to the yard where our expert cleaning team then wipes down and disinfects the entire bus before it goes out on its next trip the following day.

Our hope is that by implementing these steps it will ensure the continued safety and well-being of not only our passengers, but our employees as well.

Thank you for your continued trust in Salt Lake Express, we sincerely appreciate it. Now, as we all commit to traveling smarter and more consciously, we hope you all travel safely as well.

Thank you,
Jacob Price, Owner

Official Letter From Visit Salt Lake

Visit Salt Lake

In this time of uncertainty and concern regarding the Coronavirus, a.k.a. COVID-19, our clients and customers are asking, “Should I cancel my travel plans to Salt Lake?” According to the World Health Organization, the answer is no.

Visit Salt Lake is responding to its clients’ concerns and would like to provide our partners and members with tools to respond.

In addition to providing an informative video produced by the CDC about why travelers shouldn’t cancel plans, reiterating simple health recommendations for staying safe during the outbreak, and providing up-to-date informational links to the CDC and WHO regarding the current situation in the U.S., there are some Salt Lake facts that are important to consider:

  • SALT LAKE IS AN INLAND DESTINATION: Unlike Washington and California, where the majority of COVID-19 cases are located, Salt Lake is inland and away from the majority of international travelers arriving by air or sea from China and other countries experiencing the highest rate of infected individuals.
  • SALT LAKE CITY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: Though a major hub for Delta Air Lines, Salt Lake City International does not currently have non-stop service to/from restricted countries.
  • We understand there are a number of major issues regarding coronavirus and group travel, including the legality and practicality of trying to invoke force majeure clauses. For those of you that utilize contracts within your business, it is important to remember that a true force majeure generally requires two elements:

(1) an unexpected/unanticipated event, AND
(2) the event is illegal or impossible to fulfill as a result.

*Currently, most group concerns are an attrition issue, not a force majeure.

Other facts to consider:

  • OUTDOOR RECREATION: Salt Lake provides many opportunities for outdoor recreation, which is a good alternative for those concerned about going to crowded tourist attractions and the associated potential risk for contracting the virus.
  • TRAVEL COSTS: With so many people staying home due to fear of the virus, hotel rates and other associated travel costs are lower.

Salt Lake Express Sun Valley

Salt Lake Express Travel Bucket List

The Salt Lake Express is not simply a shuttle. Yes, it is a convenient way to get to from point A to point B. Yes, they offer you WiFi, water, and comfortable seats. However, the Salt Lake Express also allows you to experience places that you never knew existed or never dreamed of visiting. With nearly 100 stops across six different states, there are a lot of trips you can take and a lot of memories you can make. So let’s check out just a few of the many places you can visit.

Salt Lake Express Travel

A Few Places We Stop

Sun Valley

In the middle of the Sawtooth National Forest and Challis National Forests is a town called Sun Valley which is the first stop on our tour. Sun Valley, Idaho is known for its famous Sun Valley Resort. In the winters the mountain and lodge is filled with snowboarders and skiers. With 18 lifts on bald mountain and 4 more on dollar mountain, people are left with several options for runs both easy and challenging.

Salt Lake Express Sun Valley

In the summers, however, the mountain changes completely. The wildflowers color the mountain and line the trails for hikers and horseback riders. There are people camping and fishing and enjoying the warm weather. But the Resort is not all that makes Sun Valley such a great destination. In the city of Ketchum there are museums and shops for people to visit as well as events throughout the year. There is an art festival July 10-12 that includes art booths, live music, and food. The Tour de Force is July 23-25 where up to 200 cars gather for admiring and then a high speed race to finish off the week. You can also go visit the Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve for some star gazing and astronomy. After you visit Sun Valley take a trip farther south and see what else Idaho has to offer.

Jerome

An hour and a half south of Sun Valley and just north of Twin Falls is a little town called Jerome. The area, although small in population, is exploding with activities and memories just waiting to be made. Country scenery with plenty of different hikes and adventures. The most famous activity in Jerome is the County Fair. It will be held on August 10-15 this year (2020) and will include a rodeo, live concert, fair food, and fun. Outside of the events and small town experiences are beautiful hikes and wildlife. The following is just a small list of hikes in and near Jerome County.

  • Perrine Bridge
  • Wilson Butte Cave
  • Devils Coral
  • Minidoka National Historic Site
  • Cauldron Linn
  • Pillar Falls
  • Shoshone Falls
  • Snake River Canyons Park
  • Miracle and Banbury Hot Springs – Buhl ID
  • Shoshone Ice Caves – Shoshone ID
  • Shoshone Falls – Kimberly ID
  • Thousand Springs – Hagerman ID
  • Balanced Rock – Glenns Ferry

Cedar City

If you keep traveling south you will come to beautiful Cedar City, Utah. Cedar City is famous for their tony-award winning, Shakespear festival in the summers. During the summer months there are numerous fun events. On Wednesdays from July through October the city of cedar hosts an open-air farmers market with locally grown produce, art, and handmade crafts. In July they host the Midsummer Renaissance Faire as well as the Jamboree car show. The Championship Rodeo is one month later in June. And in October there is the Cedar Live and Heritage Festival.

They also have attractions that are available year round. In the mid 1800s, the pioneers settled Utah. They found iron in Cedar City and sent volunteers to settle the area. Hundreds of years later we have the Frontier Homestead State Park to commemorate those settlers. The park offers several activities and displays for people and families to enjoy. Cedar Breaks National Monument is another beautiful site to see. It includes a dense forest of trees against the bright red and orange colored rock. The Coal Creek Parkway Trail is perfect for hiking. It features coal creek, underpass trail, gold medal mile walk, and more

Las Vegas

Even further down south we have arrived in Las Vegas, Nevada, the city that never sleeps. Las Vegas is full of life and a place where you will never be bored. The Las Vegas Strip is the perfect place to party. Vegas has several amazing places to stay, but the Bellagio Hotel and Casino is one of the highest recommended places to stay. While you enjoy the hype of the city do not miss out of the live music and comedy shows. They have new people every night to keep you entertained. The Adventuredome Theme Park is right in the heart of the city and is a perfect place for kids and adults to enjoy the thrill of the rides. It is also a great place to experience different foods from a variety of cultures.

Many, however, miss the beauty just outside of the city. If you travel just beyond the city, you will find mountains and canyons that will blow your mind away. If this is more your scene, carve out some time for Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, the Historic Railroad Hiking Trail, Gypsum Cave, and Ice Box Canyon. You can enjoy hikes or rock climbing or even ziplining over Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon. If you want to see all of this beauty from farther above, take a hot air balloon tour.

Locations Farther Out

The Salt Lake Express transports you to locations all over Idaho, Utah, Nevada, and Montana, as well as additional locations in Arizona and Wyoming. If these locations are not enough for your adventurous lifestyle then we suggest catching the Salt Lake Express to the nearest airport and traveling from there. The shuttle makes stops at the Boise, Idaho Falls, Twin Falls, Las Vegas and Salt Lake City airports.

Salt Lake Express Airport

From these airports there are endless places to visit. Take a trip to New York to see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, to go shopping, and eat some delicious pizza and street hot dogs. Or you could fly to California to visit Disneyland or learn to surf. Chicago, Pittsburgh, and New Orleans all have tons of history, culture, music, and food. We could make this list a mile long!

No matter where you go, remember that The Salt Lake Express can take you there. We ride in style and offer comfort, safety, and kindness your whole way there.

Salt Lake Express is your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Your Salt Lake City Airport Shuttle Solution

This is a familiar situation. When you fly into Salt Lake City International Airport, you often have someone who can pick you up. But sometimes, that option isn’t available. You may have flown into Salt Lake, but maybe you need to get somewhere else. Perhaps you’re going back to school in Provo, Logan, Pocatello, or Rexburg. Or you’re visiting family in Spanish Fork or Ogden. Regardless of why you fly in, you’ll always need a ride from the airport. And that is where Salt Lake Express — your Salt Lake City airport shuttle solution — comes in.

Salt Lake Express is a shuttle and charter company that serves over 100 locations throughout Utah, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Arizona. Although we serve plenty of regional airports as well as domestic and international, Salt Lake International is definitely one of the higher demanding stops. The capital of Utah is not only a central hub for our company, but it is a stepping stone and gateway for hundreds of destinations across the West. Our goal is to make this area, as well as your feat of arriving at your destination, smaller.

With numerous other transportation options, here are some reasons why you should make us your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.


Don't pay for parking, use your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Don’t pay for parking.

Flying can be both stressful and expensive, so why incur even more stress and cost by driving yourself to the airport? Economy lot parking is $9 per day, which really adds up if you want to make your trip worth the cost of flying. Plus, if you drive yourself, you have to navigate Salt Lake City traffic. It can get pretty bad and drivers can get pretty reckless: believe us, we make the trip multiple times a day!

The bottom line is, instead of paying to park for days between navigating crazy traffic, you could take a shuttle. Relax in our high-back seats, rest your eyes, and let our experienced drivers take care of things. And when you arrive at the airport, Salt Lake Express will drop you off right at the terminal. No waiting for ground transportation, no cramming onto the Green Line. Ours is a Salt Lake City airport shuttle you can rely on.

Salt Lake Express is your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Ride in comfort, convenience, and safety.

The result of not worrying about paying for parking or dodging crazy drivers is that elusive state: comfort. And Salt Lake Express does more than just give you a seat: our four different models of buses each feature high-back, reclining seats, spacious leg room, and amenities. The convenience factor plays in here, as select buses include bottled water, and restrooms. We not only want our riders to feel they are taking the easiest way to and from the airport, we also want them to enjoy themselves. Plug in, stay hydrated, stretch those legs, and take it easy when you ride our Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Above all else, safety is of the utmost importance to us. All other points are moot if we can’t guarantee a safe journey. Our drivers are courteous and friendly but they also are professional, CDL-certified individuals who take their job seriously. Probably the largest common denominator between our goal for your comfort and convenience is safety. When you feel safe, and you will on our buses, you feel comfortable.

We also serve the areas a little closer to home, including seven locations right in Salt Lake in case you just need to get a little closer to home.

Skip the SLC Airport Parking

You just booked your trip and are planning on flying out of Salt Lake City. The hardest part is done. Now you need to figure out where to park, what you are going to pack and list goes on and on. The one main thing you are worried about is the SLC airport parking. Is it worth the cost? Will you have to park far away and take a shuttle? Maybe you have a friend who could take you to the airport but maybe they can’t pick you up on your return trip, the possibilities are endless. That is where we come in and solve the problem.

Cost of SLC Airport Parking

While there are many options when it comes to parking in and around the SLC airport, they can all cost a bit of money. You drive your own car, you leave it in parking and you pay a daily rate. The closer you get to the airport, the higher the cost. You then decide to park at airport parking that still involves a 10 to 15 minute shuttle ride to the airport. This may seem like the best plan but when it comes to simplifying your travel and cutting costs, SLC airport parking might not pay off.

Getting a Ride from Friends or Taxi

Maybe you can find a friend to take you but they might not be able to pick you up on the return trip. Maybe you take a taxi or Uber and pay that high rate for a one-way ride. There are plenty of options to get you to the airport. There are also plenty of options that help you avoid SLC airport parking but none of them solve the problem from start to finish. That is where Salt Lake Express comes in.
