Description

The station is located at 875 East 400 South (East University Boulevard/SR-186), with the island platform being in the median of 400 South. As part of the UTA's Art in Transit program, the station features a sculpture of stainless steel and recycled bicycle wheels created by Stuart Keeler and Michael Machnic entitled The Place Between. Unlike most TRAX stations, 900 East& 400 South does not have a Park and Ride lot. The station is part of a railway right of way that was created specifically for the former University Line. The station was opened on 15 December 2001 as part of the former University Line and is operated by the Utah Transit Authority.

All of UTA's TRAX and FrontRunner trains and stations, streetcars and streetcar stops, and all fixed route buses are compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act and are therefore accessible to those with disabilities. 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".
