Utah Transit Authority
Utah Transit Authority (UTA) provides commuter rail, light rail, bus service, and vanpools in Ogden and along the Wasatch Front. Maps and schedules, as well as information about fare card and discount fare programs, are available online.
Commuter rail service connects downtown Ogden to many other communities along the Wasatch Front, including Salt Lake City and Provo. The trains are clean, comfortable, and reliable. Frontrunner offers a great way of getting to Salt Lake City for a Jazz game, concert, or day of shopping - without the hassle and cost of parking.
Bus Rapid Transit
Ogden Express (OGX), completed in August 2023, provides riders with a clean-air option using an electric bus from the Ogden FrontRunner Station, through downtown along dedicated bus lanes in the center of the road. OGX runs every 10 to 15 minutes on weekdays, following Harrison Boulevard to Weber State University campus, and to McKay-Dee Hospital. UTA offers free fares on OGX for the next three years, until 2026. UTA's OGX section has a full breakdown of schedules and routes.
Ogden is well-served by UTA’s robust bus service. Commonly used bus routes include routes along Washington Boulevard and Monroe Boulevard, intercity service to Salt Lake City and Brigham City, and service from the Frontrunner station to Weber State University. Routes also serve some of Ogden’s major employment centers, such as Business Depot Ogden.
Ogden is now connected by bus to two world-class ski resorts: Snowbasin and Powder Mountain. The ski bus offers a great alternative to driving, especially in bad weather or when your kids want to hit the slopes with their friends. The ski bus makes our great mountains even more accessible.
Bicycle Lanes & Trails
Ogden has an extensive system of bike lanes and trails, providing a great opportunity for active transportation around town. Ogden has been designated as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, and recently completed a new Bicycle Master Plan (PDF). In addition to bike lanes around town, Ogden is home to the Ogden River Parkway (a paved multi-use trail) and miles of off-road trails. Weber Pathways offers a comprehensive map of bike lanes and trails in the Ogden area.
Ogden City introduced GREENbike to downtown with six docking stations with 60 bikes in circulation. Lime electric scooters are also available throughout the city. The addition of both GREENbike and Lime further Ogden's initiative to continue as a walkable, rideable community.
Ogden-Hinckley Airport (OGD) has 100 acres of developable land, including runway-adjacent sites on the airport's west side. Lease options on the airports west side are customizable. The sites on the west side of the airport are ideal for aerospace and defense-related business operations looking for easy access to the airport and interstate, while simultaneously being near Hill Air Force Base. The airport prospectus has more details on the landscape of OGD.
Interstates & Highways
Ogden is conveniently located near the crossroads of Interstate 15, which is Utah’s main north-south artery, and Interstate 84, which provides a connection to the east. Interstate 80 is located about 40 minutes south of Ogden and is a major east-west artery. Ogden also offers great access to many of Utah’s scenic highways and byways.
