Sugar House Streetcar
The same S-70 car that is used on TRAX is used on the S-Line. The only differences are that these cars operate as single cars and therefore the couplers have been covered up. The maximum speed has also been dramatically reduced from 65 mph to 25 mph. Three cars have been modified for the S-Line, two to operate the 20 minute headway and one to rotate as a spare. To board low floor streetcars, riders in wheelchair or other mobility device can board through any of the two center doors. Push the blue button on the train door to open the door and deploy the boarding ramp.
The line operates as a single track line. There is a passing track at the 500 E station where the two trains meet to pass. There is also two tracks at the Sugarhouse station. The remainder of the line is single track.
The other unique feature of this route is the addition of Parley's Trail. The trail will eventually stretch 8.25 miles from the Jordan River Parkway in the west to the Bonneville Shoreline trail at I-215/I-80 in the east. The segment between Central Pointe and Sugarhouse includes the streetcar, bike/pedestrian trail, landscaping, public plazas and other amenities and is known together as the S Line Greenway.
