Sandy Civic Center is a light rail station in Sandy, Utah, United States serviced by the Blue Line of Utah Transit Authority's TRAX light rail system. The Blue Line provides service from Downtown Salt Lake City to Draper. Prior to the opening of the Draper extension in 2013 this station was the southernmost on the Blue Line.

Description

The station is located at 115 East Sego Lily Drive (9800/10000 South) [1] and is easily accessed from State Street (US-89) by heading east on Sego Lily Drive or from 700 East (SR-71) by heading west on Sego Lilly Drive. The station is just southeast of Jordan High School on a hill overlooking Sandy's downtown area to the west, but major downtown destinations such as Sandy's City Hall and the South Towne Center mall are between a quarter mile and a mile away. The hillside itself still has many undeveloped open fields. Suburban residential areas and a park are just east of the station, as well as the Porter Rockwell Trail (Sandy Railtrail), but they are only accessible from the station via an indirect route to the Sego Lily Drive at-grade crossing. The station has a free Park and Ride lot with nearly 1,200 free parking spaces available,[1][Note 1] however, the East Jordan Canal runs through the lot creating a slight barrier between sections of the lot. The station opened on 4 December 1999 as part of the first operating segment of the TRAX system [3] and is operated by the 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.[5] 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. 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".[6]
