Description

The station is located on the campus of the University of Utah at 10 North Mario Capecchi Drive (formerly called Medical Drive),[Note 1] with the island platform situated on the west side of the street. The station provides service for the nearby medical facilities, including the University of Utah Hospital, Primary Children's Medical Center, the Huntsman Cancer Institute, and the Moran Eye Center. Unlike many TRAX stations, University Medical Center does not have a Park and Ride lot, however, UTA indicates that there is "limited parking" available.[1] The station opened on September 29, 2003[2] 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.[4] Signage at the stations, on the passenger platforms, and on the trains clearly indicate accessibility options. 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".[5]
