Anime Banzai 2016

FREE Shuttle from FrontRunner to the DCC!

Good news, Banzai-goers!

If you use public transportation, then this announcement is for YOU!

The cities of Layton and Clearfield, in collaboration with UTA, now have a Midtown Trolley (#628) that will pick you up from either of the two FrontRunner stations near the Davis Conference Center (Layton further south or Clearfield further north) and bring you right to the front door of the DCC.

And here’s the best part: it’s FREE.

This new Midtown Trolley (#628) is currently in the shape of a normal bus, so don’t be fooled by its name of “trolley”.

For additional information, go to UTA’s website.
