Snow routing occurs when UTA buses are unable to follow their regular route due to inclement weather. If there is a substantial amount of snow or ice on the roads, buses will avoid steep hills in favor of safer routes. Snow routing only affects select UTA bus routes and stops and is only put into place during or immediately after severe weather. Once roads are cleared, buses will resume their regular routes.

Bus stops that are subject to snow routing are indicated by a snowflake symbol on the bus stop sign. New bus stop signs have a white square, and older bus stop signs have a blue metal flag.

When a bus is on snow routing, it will detour from its regular route. You may need to catch your bus at a different location during this time. See below to find your route’s specific snow routing map to determine where to catch the bus.
