Orem, UT Transportation
Orem is crossed north/south by Interstate 15, which was recently reconstructed and widened through the city. The overall project cost was $1.725 billion. The Orem portion was widened to six lanes northbound and six lanes southbound. Please see the following links for more information.
In 2012, a commuter rail line known as the UTA FrontRunner was completed through northern Utah County. The train stops at the Orem Central station which is located in southwest Orem. An Orem rider can travel south to Provo City, north to Salt Lake City, or even further north to Ogden City. UTA buses connect to the station and provide riders access to other Orem locations.
With the completion of the FrontRunner commuter rail line and the light rail line that connects to the Salt Lake International Airport, travel between Orem and the airport can be done by using mass transit.
The Orem Central Station connects the FrontRunner to the Utah Valley Express (UVX).
UVX is a Bus Rapid Transit system with buses that run every six minutes during morning and evening commutes and every ten minutes during the day. The route includes 51% exclusive bus lanes and permanent stations.
