Getting Around

Parking in Park City is limited, especially in the historic Main Street area, and it is just plain awful if you're driving a motor home or pulling a trailer. If you've arrived in a car, the best plan is to park it and ride the free city bus. Main Street has metered parking (in effect daily 11am-8pm); fairly large parking lots are situated near both the upper and lower ends of Main Street.

If you still want to rent a car and brave the parking problems, rental agencies here include All Resort Car Rental, 1821 Sidewinder Dr. (tel. 800/457-9457 or 435/649-3999; www.allresort.com), and Enterprise, 2720 W. Rasmussen Rd. (tel. 800/261-7331 or 435/655-7277; www.enterprise.com).

Park City's very efficient free transit system offers several routes throughout Park City and the surrounding area, daily from 7:30am until 10:30pm. The Main Street Trolley links Main Street and Park City Mountain Resort, and public buses travel to the outlying areas. Pick up the Transit System Guide brochure for a good route map and specific schedules. The weekly booklet This Week in Park City contains helpful info plus several area maps, including one of Main Street. Both are available at the visitor centers and many lodgings.
