Fashion Place West is a light rail station in Murray, Utah, United States serviced by both the Blue Line and the Red Line of Utah Transit Authority's TRAX light rail system. The Blue Line provides service from Downtown Salt Lake City to Draper. The Red Line provides service from the University of Utah to the Daybreak Community of South Jordan.

Description

The station is located at 222 West Winchester Street (6400 South) and is easily accessible from that cross street. The station has two island platforms to accommodate three tracks: the easternmost track serves all northbound trains, the middle track serves southbound Blue Line trains, and the westernmost track serves southbound Red Line trains.[3] Fashion Place West is named for its location a few blocks west of the Fashion Place Mall. When the station originally opened on 4 December 1999 [2] the station had only one island platform, and was on a section of double track in the middle of a wye leading to the Lovendahl yard. For the construction of the Red Line,[4] the second (western) island platform was added. Northbound Blue and Red line trains can be boarded from the east side of the eastern platform. Southbound Red Line trains stop on the west track, and southbound Blue Line trains stop at the center track. The station has two free Park and Ride lots, with one on both the east and west sides of the tracks, however, the UTA buses only connect in the eastern lot.

[Note 1] The eastern lot is accessible from Winchester Street (6400 South), while the western lot is only accessible from Cottonwood Street (300 West. Between the two lots, there are 100 parking spaces available.[1] The station is operated by Utah Transit Authority.

All of UTA's TRAX and FrontRunner trains and stations, as well as all fixed route buses, are compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act and are therefore accessible to those with disabilities.[6] Signage at the stations, on the passenger platforms, and on the trains clearly indicate accessibility options. Ramps on the passenger platform and assistance from the train operator may be necessary for wheelchair boarding on Blue Line (weekdays only). These ramps are not used on weekends or on the Red Line. In accordance with the Utah Clean Air Act and UTA ordinance, "smoking is prohibited on UTA vehicles as well as UTA bus stops, TRAX stations, and FrontRunner stations".[7]
