Getting Around Park City

The best way to get around Park City is on foot or via free public transportation. The Main Street trolley runs up and down the steep historic street for short jaunts, and bus routes service all major locations in town, as well as both ski resorts. Rideshare services, including Uber and Lyft, are available, and a new UberSki service guarantees you get a driver with all-wheel drive and room to carry skis and snowboards during the winter months. 

The closest major airport, Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), is located 35 miles northwest of Park City. You can rent a car for the drive to Park City or take a shuttle van, bus or rideshare service to reach your accommodations.

On Foot

The best way to explore Historic Park City is on foot or via the free trolley. Most of the city's shops, galleries and restaurants are located in this area. The trolley runs daily from one end of the steep street to the other from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Bus and trolley

Park City's public transportation includes the Main Street trolley and a bus system  – both are free to use. The bus routes offer service to most major attractions in town, and also run to the two major ski resorts. Both the bus and trolley are bike-friendly as well. Most routes operate from 6 or 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. or 12 a.m.

Taxi

Although there are several taxi services and shuttle companies in Park City, most visitors take advantage of the city's free public transportation to get around town and to get between the ski resorts. However, if you need to go outside of the main resort area – for instance, to go tubing at Gorgoza Park, which is not on the free bus route – you may want to take a taxi or use a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft. A new UberSki service (offered during the winter months) guarantees an all-wheel drive vehicle with room for skis and snowboards.

Car

Driving is easy in Park City and on the well-maintained interstate between the Salt Lake City airport and the city. Note that it is advisable during the winter season to rent a vehicle with all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive to navigate snowy roads. There are more than 10 car rental companies located at or near the airport, as well as a handful of agencies in Park City.
