If you’re a renter interested in working or going to school in Salt Lake City, but you’re thinking you’d rather live outside city limits, you should consider looking into any number of Sandy/Draper apartments. Both cities are located south of Salt Lake City, thirteen miles and twenty miles away from downtown, respectively, and both offer easy access to the city by car, bus, or light rail.
Apart from benefiting from substantially lower rental costs than those you might encounter in Salt Lake City, living in Sandy offers you easy access to TRAX, the light-rail system that runs directly into the heart of downtown Salt Lake. Planned completion of future stages of TRAX development will extend the line into Draper, but the city’s close proximity to Sandy makes it accessible to residents there as well.
Before you begin your apartment search, investigate what’s available. When conducting your search, refer to the Utah Transit Authority’s map of TRAX stops and stations in the vicinity of the available rental properties. This will help you narrow down your choices to apartments situated within brief walking distance or a short drive from TRAX.
