We are once again expanding our route system. Even through the Covid-19 pandemic we have continued to provide excellent service. We are dedicated more than ever to provide transportation to more communities. The new route we have added connects Salt Lake City, UT to the popular mountain town of Jackson, WY. This will provide riders in Wyoming the opportunity to travel to and from Salt Lake directly instead of having to travel the longer route through Idaho Falls. The route will be operating once a day to and from Jackson to Salt Lake.
This new route has the customary benefits you’ve come to expect from the Salt Lake Express, plus the safety precautions we are taking due to the pandemic. But don’t let these uncertain times stifle your sense of adventure. We’re excited not only for the new route from Jackson, but for all the new locations in Wyoming that it’ll serve. The new route will have stops in the following Wyoming cities: Jackson, Alpine Junction, Thayne, Afton, Kemmerer, and Evanston. The route also includes a stop in Park City, UT.

Jackson is home to three ski areas: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Snow King Mountain Resort, and Grand Targhee Resort. The Town Square features arches made of shed antlers and is surrounded by blocks of walk-able restaurants and shops. And don’t miss two famous landmarks, the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar and the Silver Dollar Bar. North of Jackson are the peaks of Grand Teton National Park, as well as vast Yellowstone National Park where you can enjoy a slower pace and enjoy the wide-open mountain valleys, and rustic, elegant décor reflecting the area’s unique heritage.
