Want to know one of the very best things about living in Daybreak? How quickly you can get to anywhere else! That’s because having a home in Daybreak means you have access to UTA’s TRAX light rail system. In fact, there are two light rail stops (plus, a third one on the way near the first phase of Downtown Daybreak) that make it a breeze to get to wherever you want to go. Simply hop aboard to access a world of possibilities.
Whether you’re a young professional, a growing family, or a footloose retiree, Daybreak is a community designed for people who want to live life to the fullest. With access to TRAX, you can easily explore downtown Salt Lake City and beyond, while still enjoying the peace and tranquility of the great outdoors at home. With 50 stops and 42.5 miles of line, you can discover new hang spots, hidden gems, and sites you never knew existed.
TRAX offers easy connections to just about anywhere you need to go—from destinations within the community to travel hubs to take your journey further. There are three lines: the Red Line from South Jordan to the University of Utah, the Blue Line from Draper to Salt Lake City, and the Green Line from West Valley to the Salt Lake International Airport. Wait, there’s more. Trax runs seven days a week! During peak times, TRAX trains arrive every 15 minutes, so you never have to wait long to catch a ride. To board TRAX, you can use FAREPAY cards or other forms of electronic payment by tapping the card reader before boarding and after exiting the train. And if you need to get somewhere that TRAX doesn’t take you right to, you can easily hop on the Frontrunner commuter train. Pro-tip: Download the Transit App to see the best routes, transfer spots, and pay for your fares. It’s that simple.
Here at Daybreak, we do everything with sustainability in mind. With TRAX as a transportation option, we get to take that initiative one step further.

The community is designed so that most people can walk to work or school, and there are plenty of public transportation options available. By reducing the need for multiple cars and promoting public transportation, Daybreak is helping to create a more sustainable future. Yup, you read that right, we are disrupting the norm of needing a car. We’ve taken care of making your community walkable, bikeable, commutable, and accessible. All you need to worry about is what adventure you’d like to embark on next.

In fact, Daybreak at its core is all about looking toward the future while embracing the most meaningful parts of the past. The community maintains that tight-knit feel, yet the design seeks to create a better and more efficient life for everyone. Thanks to the light rail, you can enjoy all of the convenience of living in Daybreak while still having fast access to all the area has to offer, whether that’s doing dinner and the theater in downtown Salt Lake City, or commuting to work in the “Silicon Slopes” technology district in northern Utah County, TRAX has you covered.
