Description

The station is located at 625 East 400 South (East University Boulevard/SR-186), [1] with the island platform being in the median of 400 South. The vicinity of the station is characterized by intensive and diverse retail development, including supermarkets and the mall in historic Trolley Square (which is one block south), though substantial office buildings and residential areas are also nearby. As part of the UTA's Art in Transit program, the station features tile mosaics, granite pavers, color laminated glass windscreens and steel created by Paul Heath, Victoria Lyons, Michael Moonbird, and Valerie Parker Price collectively entitled Bad Dog Community Art Station. [3] Unlike most TRAX stations, Trolley does not have a Park and Ride lot. [1] The station is part of a railway right of way that was created specifically for the former University Line. The station was opened on 15 December 2001 [2] as part of the University Line and is operated by the Utah Transit Authority.

All of UTA's TRAX and FrontRunner trains and stations, streetcars and streetcar stops, and all fixed route buses are compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act and are therefore accessible to those with disabilities. [4] Signage at the stations, on the passenger platforms, and on the trains clearly indicate accessibility options. In accordance with the Utah Clean Air Act and UTA ordinance, "smoking is prohibited on UTA vehicles as well as UTA bus stops, TRAX stations, and FrontRunner stations". [5]
