Description

The station is located at 9000 South 165 East and is easily accessible from 9000 South (SR-209), as well as 8800 South. There is also pedestrian and bicycle access from the Porter Rockwell Trail (Sandy Railtrail) on the west side of the tracks. The station is situated in a suburban residential area within Sandy's original street grid, which has much smaller blocks than is standard in Salt Lake County. The south end of the island platform is built over a major canal carrying water north from the Jordan River. The southwest corner of the platform connects directly to a small park next to the canal (and Porter Rockwell Trail). The station has a Park and Ride lot with over 315 free parking spaces available,. The station was opened on 4 December 1999 as part of the original TRAX 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. 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".
