Celebrating Freedom at Salt Lake Express

Just in time for Independence Day, we’re unveiling four brand new patriotic themed buses. Two Grech Mini Busses, and two Mercedes Sprinters. Taking on the signature red, white, and blue color scheme the buses looked poised for the 4th of July parades throughout Idaho and Utah.

We’re celebrating the freedom of the open road, and you will too when you step onto these. Each bus is packed with features to make your trip as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, including:

  • Leather reclining seats
  • USB chargers
  • Tinted windows
  • Arm rests
  • and more…

When you need to hit the open road this summer, celebrate freedom with Salt Lake Express.

5 Utah Destinations to Visit Before Summer Ends

In the 1966 cult classic surfing documentary Endless Summer, a couple of surfers travel both sides of the equator for one year searching for the perfect wave, enjoying an “endless summer”. Salt Lake Express does not have a travel route that expansive, so by necessity, summer must end for us. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time to check out the many great Utah destinations at your fingertips.

The Beehive State is famous for its national parks, opportunities for hiking, and breathtaking scenery. From the majesty of the Wasatch Range to the red-hued geology of southern Utah, the landscape provides plenty of diversions. If this gorgeous part of the country doesn’t provide an endless summer, it certainly encourages endless summer fun. And now in the month of August, the pressure is on to take advantage of what remains of the season.

Here are a five Utah destinations you’ll want to make sure you visit this month.


Zion National Park

Zion National Park is not only one of the most beautiful Utah destinations, it is also extremely inviting. Scores of hiking trails weave through this national park, including the popular Narrows, a hike down and in the Virgin River through the narrowest gorges of Zion Canyon.

Fascinating wild and plant life also swarm the lovely sandstone cliffs and wilderness, adding to the camping and hiking allure. Learn more about park fees, permits, and other things to do at Zion’s by visiting their official website.

Salt Lake City

Some of the best that Utah has to offer can be found in the sights, sounds, and culture of its capital. Salt Lake City keeps the summer party going even going into September. The ongoing Red Butte Garden Outdoor Concert Festival entertains with events through mid-September, the Real Madrid schedule begins this month, and City Creek is all the more enjoyable in warm weather.

From concerts to festivals to dining, Salt Lake attracts thousands upon thousands of visitors each year. And as our namesake, Salt Lake Express is proud to help sustain that exodus. Join us in Salt Lake City this summer before the cool weather moves in.

Bonneville Salt Flats

Home to the Bonneville Speedway and numerous land speed records, the Bonneville Salt Flats are a mere two hours west of Salt Lake City. The dense salt pan is a natural phenomenon and definitely worth checking out for its own sake. Not to mention there are several places to camp nearby — though not on the flats!

And when we say flats, we mean flat. You can practically see the curvature of the earth, and there is no vegetation to decorate the landscape. This truly otherworldy part of the state is one of the most impressive Utah destinations.

Bryce Canyon

Just 72 miles from Zion is yet another national park — Bryce Canyon National Park, which includes more sandstone features, huge, breathtaking amphitheaters, and a dazzling array of color. Summer is a great time to visit Bryce Canyon, but late August and September are especially timely; at this point, the summer rains have subsided and temperatures are still pleasant. In fact, while other popular outdoor areas in southern Utah experience fairly scorching heat, Bryce Canyon remains more temperate.

If you are looking to visit Utah destinations off the beaten path, Bryce is several hours from any major airport and over 100 miles from the I-15. We’re happy to take you as close as we can!

Bear Lake

On the other end of the state, straddling the Utah-Idaho border, Bear Lake boasts just about all the summer fun you can imagine. Swimming, boating, camping, and fishing are all available from both states’ sides.

You can also enjoy summer events at Bear Lake, such as the Bear Lake County Fair and coinciding Rodeo Days.


Our summer days may be numbered, but in Utah, there are plenty of attractions to fill them up. From the diverse cultural experience of the city to the beauty and wonder of the parks, these Utah destinations are ideal during this time of year.

Book your trip to your next destination with Salt Lake Express and we will take you there or to the nearest drop-off point. This state is vast and open for adventure, so make good use of the summer and explore its endless majesty.

For Bus Rentals, Choose Salt Lake Express

At Salt Lake Express, we’re proud of the fact that we are in the business of simplification. We facilitate travel in a hassle-free and affordable manner. Traveling already presents enough difficulties as it is. And we want to trim the fat. So if you’re looking around for bus rentals, we’re here to lovingly say “stop”. With our daily shuttles and charter service, we have you covered.

Daily Shuttles

The easiest way to get to where you need to go is by booking on one of our many daily shuttles. Salt Lake Express’ route includes more than 100 stops between Great Falls, Montana and Las Vegas, Nevada. We also include out-of-the-way destinations such as the popular Jackson Hole, Boise, and even down to Page, Arizona. With Salt Lake as our hub (thus the name), we nevertheless serve passengers all over the intermountain west.

If you are looking for bus rentals, you are probably looking to move a group of people, and not just yourself. Daily shuttles are still a good, efficient, and easy way to get yourself and a few people to a destination. If, however, you have a big group you wish to transport, we have options for that as well.

Charter Service

At Salt Lake Express, we’re not only proud of the extent of our travel route but what beautiful landmarks it includes. Yellowstone, Snow Canyon, Zion, the Grand Tetons, and Arches are just a few of the many parks along the route. These are places best enjoyed with friends and family. The best way to get you all there is with our Salt Lake Express charter service.

What sets our charter service apart from other bus rentals is the value we add to your trip. It starts at checkout; when you reserve a charter, you won’t break the bank. From there on, it’s comfortable seating, amenities, and friendly, outgoing drivers all the way in.

If you’re looking for a way to head to Yellowstone or Vegas or wherever en masse, don’t worry about other bus rentals. You get the best in service and convenience when you go with Salt Lake Express, whether you and a few friends take a shuttle or if you need an entire charter bus.

Salt Lake Express offers great deals from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City

3 Reasons to Travel from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City

One of Salt Lake Express’ most popular routes is the Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City corridor. This stretch of I-15 takes passengers through fascinating and underrated parts of Idaho, like the hills of Inkom and Devil Creek Reservoir. It also brings you within close proximity to a number of state parks, ghost towns, and trails. And, of course, it connects two great cities of the west with plenty to do and people to see in each.

So why choose Salt Lake Express? There are, of course, other options: a different shuttle company, carpooling with friends, or even driving yourself down. While there are many ways for you to get from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City, there are a few ways that Salt Lake Express makes it completely worth your while.

Here are just three of them to give you a small taste.


A low $29 fare

In recognition of how many people take this route, Salt Lake Express offers a one-way fare for Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City starting at $29. That’s $29 you wouldn’t need to spend on gas or parking downtown (which we’ll get to in a sec).

Plus, Salt Lake Express always offering discount codes via email or social media that could knock another $5 or even 20% (about $6) off your ticket price! So you’re looking at under $25 to make the trip if you play your cards right.

Door-to-door pickup and dropoff

In addition to paying less for comfortable and quality travel, Idaho Falls and Salt Lake City each have plenty of stops for pickup and dropoff. And if you are traveling from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City, did you know that the shuttle can pick you up right from your front door? In addition to the airport and Shaka’s Oasis, Salt Lake Express offers door-to-door pickup service in Idaho Falls. Less than $30 fare and you can get picked up at home? This deal just keeps getting better and better all the time.

Don’t pay for parking

Whether you’re heading to the airport or downtown, parking can get tricky — and expensive. By traveling with Salt Lake Express, we eliminate that problem. That means you can enjoy your trip without worrying about how much money your parked car is racking up. You can wander City Creek or go to a Real Salt Lake without fretting over street meters or your car’s safety.


Between the low fare and the convenience of both pickup and dropoff, Salt Lake Express has strived diligently to serve passengers according to their needs. The logistics of the ride aside, they also make an effort to make sure the ride is comfortable and safe. To book your trip from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City, visit the Salt Lake Express homepage and let’s get you down there.

Charter Bus Rentals for Group Transportation - fleet.

Charter Bus Rentals for Group Transportation

We as human beings have a primal desire to fall into groups. We marry, raise families, work in companies, go out with friends, join teams, and go to movie theaters. And sometimes, this desire to pack together not only has social and emotional benefits but logistical as well. It is much easier to move a planeful of people from one country to another than to individually ship them. And at Salt Lake Express, we offer charter bus rentals because we know your need for group transportation.

There are many ways to individually get from point A to point B. But when it comes to moving an entire team or another group of people, options become more limited. Say you’re a baseball team with not only a whole roster of players but a large amount of equipment. Or maybe you’re a church group and you need space for all the food to feed them. Very quickly, a well-intentioned work retreat can turn into a logistical nightmare.

This is where Salt Lake Express can show you what it’s really made of. Just how can we help you transport your group, and whom do we serve? That is what we hope to address.


Charter Bus Rentals for Group Transportation - MCI D-Series

We offer charter bus rentals.

Salt Lake Express is a time-honored shuttle service serving over 100 stops throughout the intermountain west. Spanning from Montana all the way down to Nevada, our route includes numerous popular destinations like Yellowstone, Zion’s National Park, Sun Valley, and Las Vegas. With this blessing of serving such areas comes an inherent responsibility. Millions of people visit these and other spots annually, and most come from outside the region. We are committed to assisting them in their journey.

And more often than not, people make these trips as groups, not just individually. This where the issue of logistics returns. How do you comfortably move a large group of people when there is such limited space, and high demand? The answer lies in charter bus rentals.

With four different bus models in our fleet, we are well-equipped from the beginning to customize your trip to your needs. If you are traveling a longer distance, you can specify that you require a restroom on the bus. Thankfully, each of our buses comes with heating and air conditioning so no matter the weather, you can still comfortable on the bus. Each bus, regardless of the model, also comes with overhead storage and reclining, high-back seats.

Convenience and specific requests come at no extra cost — just identify what you need and we’ll take care of it.

Renting a charter bus for group transportation can be expensive. It makes sense; for one rate, you’re moving a large group of people and shuttle companies need to beat their margins.

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. And there’s no more convenient way to travel than to arrive without incident.

Use coupon codes to ride your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Take advantage of readily available coupon codes.

Salt Lake Express appreciates their customers so much that they are more than willing to give out promo codes so you can save money. There are always deals going on on Facebook, Instagram, and the website, but if all else fails, ask. Message the Facebook page or contact customer support and someone will get back to you as quickly as possible. Most promo codes are typically good for $5 off at purchase.

Also, remember to subscribe to their email list. After every time you ride, you will get an email within the week thanking you for choosing Salt Lake Express and, you got it, supplying you with a new promo code just for you.

In fact, just for getting this far, we’ll offer you a promo code good for any travel in 2018. Apply code slcairport18 for $5 off.

We are a Salt Lake City airport shuttle that takes you all over.

Although it has been implied many times before now, we figured we’d come right out and say it: we go all over. Maybe you live in southern Utah but flights into Las Vegas were too expensive; fly into Salt Lake and we’ll get you home. 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. From destinations all along the Wasatch front to Great Falls to Boise to Las Vegas, we have you covered.


You want your trip — especially those that involve flying — to go smoothly, and so do we. There’s no reason to make things complicated in arriving and departing the airport. Salt Lake Express cuts the fat and allows you to find some enjoyment in travel once again. As you plan your next trip through Salt Lake International, be sure to ride with Salt Lake Express.

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.

Skip the Parking and Take the Express!

Don’t hassle with expensive airport parking and don’t worry about coordinating rides to and from the airport.Our shuttles can take you right to the terminal and drop you off. When you book your trip you can set it up around a time when the SLE shuttle can pick you back up and take you home. The days of SLC airport parking are over. Don’t bug your friends for a ride. Take the express and enjoy stress-free travel today. We have shuttles dropping off and picking up passengers daily at the SLC airport. Book your next trip with us today and see why you will never have to pay for SLC airport parking again. We even offer door to door pick in select cities so make sure to select the best options for your needs when booking your ticket with Salt Lake Express. We also travel to the Las Vegas Airport with our sister company, St. George Express. We now offer routes between Montana and Las Vegas. Book with us today!
