All Aboard: UTA to Open New Light Rail Lines

Last week I was able to host a (sort of) once in a lifetime event…A sneak peak “first ride” for bloggers and social media professionals on Utah Transit Authority’s yet-to-open Mid Jordan TRAX line.

The line is one of two lines scheduled to open to the public August 7.

Everyone knows that the key to a happy mom is happy children, right?My friend Andrea helped me out with the most adorable graphics for the kid’s goodie bags we prepared. Each bag was filled with an engineer’s cap, a train whistle, a package of crayons and a coloring page, as well as some “chew chews” (otherwise known as taffy).

I am fairly certain that there are probably a few moms out there ready to kill me over the whistles, but the kids loved them so very much.

One of the worst things about running an event like this is that you never get enough photos, but this one? Pretty priceless.

Thanks to all of my supportive friends for coming out to participate in this event!

If you didn’t get a chance to make it and would like to, UTA is hosting a public ride day before the line opens on August 3. The agency has partnered with the Utah Food Bank to collect food for those who need it most with a “Food is Your Fare” program. Bring a can of food August 3 and ride free between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m.

I handle social media for UTA, but I was under no obligation to share a post on how awesome this particular event was on my personal blog. I am writing it because the event was fun and I sort of love transit.

    It looks like you all had a great time. What fun goodie bags for the kids. I wish I could have brought my boys but we were on our Utah Temple Tour week. I hope to see you again soon.
