SALT LAKE CITY – Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker, South Salt Lake City Mayor Cheri Wood and UTA Chief Capital Development Officer Steve Meyer unveiled the new name and branding for the Sugar House Streetcar and Parley’s Trail corridor on Thurs. Sept. 5 at 9 a.m. near the new line at approximately 2225 South and just east of 800 East.

Officials announced the streetcar and trail corridor name, logo, design theme and vehicle design, and shared important safety information as test vehicles begin running in the corridor.

Great care has gone into designing a corridor that welcomes all users, celebrates local history, tells the story of the surrounding natural environment and creates a sense of place that will unite the community and grow along with the neighborhood over time.

“This event marks another important milestone in the development of the Sugar House Streetcar,” said Mayor Becker. “The corridor showcases the array of our future neighborhood transportation modes including streetcar, bike and pedestrian paths along with a beautiful public greenway. And, once again, our entire community bears the benefits of a wonderful collaboration with South Salt Lake City, UTA and our federal transportation partners.”

“UTA is excited to introduce the first modern streetcar to the community,” said Meyer. “This line will run from the Central Pointe TRAX station to the heart of Sugar House, providing connectivity between business districts, neighborhoods and a regional transit system.”

“We are eager to move ahead with this dynamic project,” said Mayor Wood. “The streetcar and Parley’s Trail may conceivably become a substantial public benefit promising great economic development. The new streetcar line will enhance transportation services, present new advantages and will encourage a consistent flow of residents and consumers. We are striving to foster a thriving, diverse, community.”

The new streetcar line and parallel trail and greenway are scheduled to open in December 2013.

The Sugar House Streetcar project is funded in part by a $26 million U.S. Department of Transportation TIGER II grant that was awarded in 2010. The project has already generated over $400 million in associated development and economic activity.

The two-mile route that connects the Central Pointe TRAX station with Highland Drive will feature seven stops and 20-minute service intervals. For more information on the project, visit .
