Meadowbrook is a light rail station in South Salt Lake, Utah, United States (near the city's southern border with Millcreek Township) serviced by 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 188 West 3900 South and is easily accessed from West Temple and westbound 3900 South; however, vehicles traveling east on 3900 South must access the station by turning north onto West Temple (as left turns into the station from 3900 South are not permitted. Just west of the station (and the tracks) is the small Meadowbrook Campus of Salt Lake Community College. About a block north of the station is a large townhouse development. The station has a free Park and Ride lot with nearly 500 free parking spaces available.[1][Note 1] 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]
