The Utah Transit Authority is offering extra FrontRunner trains and late-night TRAX service for the Saturday football game in Provo between BYU and the University of Utah.

The game kicks off late, at 8:15 p.m. Before the game, FrontRunner trains will be offered every half-hour between 4:09 and 6:09 p.m. to help transport fans. UTA will offer direct bus service to the stadium from FrontRunner stops in Orem and Provo.

After the game, UTA will extend service to help riders return home. Bus service from the stadium will be offered for 30 minutes after the game. Post-game FrontRunner trains will run the full lengh of the line to Ogden.

Some select late-night service on connecting TRAX trains will also be offered. Late Blue and Red TRAX line service for fans may be accessed at the Murray Central Station. Limited late service on the Green Line — just to the 1940 W. North Station but not the airport — will be offered to FrontRunner passengers connecting at the North Temple/Guadalupe station.
