Salt Lake Express has begun operating a new route that connects Salt Lake City and Reno, Nevada, via I-80. The route officially began service on Dec. 1.
This new route comes after months of working with the Nevada Department of Transportation in determining the needs of communities along this corridor. Riders will now be able to easily access the “Biggest Little City in the World” more efficiently from locations such as Salt Lake City and the Idaho cities of Boise, Rexburg, Idaho Falls and Twin Falls. Stops in Nevada include Wells, Elko, Battle Mountain, Winnemucca, Lovelock and Fernley.
“Our riders have been asking for this connection for some time now,” said Jacob Price, owner of Salt Lake Express. “We’re happy that we’re finally able to offer it to them. We know that it’s going to help so many travelers in this part of the country.”
Answers many travel needs
Not only does this new route provide a much-needed connection for many riders, but it also adds a few new destinations to the Express’s expanding route map such as Winnemucca, Battle Mountain, and Fernley, all of which have something unique to offer to adventurous travelers.
This also opens up an entire corridor of travel for college students attending the University of Nevada, the University of Utah and Brigham Young University.
“This route satisfies the needs of many travelers,” said Price. “But more than that, it opens up travel to the regional Tahoe area, which is a big reason a lot of people visit Reno in both the summer and winter.”
In addition to this new route, Salt Lake Express has recently added a direct route from Boise to Salt Lake as well as routes throughout eastern and southern Utah, hitting destinations like Moab, Vernal and Blanding.
