Transportation services for travel to Sundance

Going out on Main Street during Sundance? Is transportation after midnight a concern? Given the very limited parking options, there are plenty of taxi services in Park City that can safely chauffeur visitors and locals back home after the parties are over. A list of taxi services is available at http://www.visitparkcity.com/visitors/transportation.

For more elegant transportation, limousine and town car services are available on the website as well. If personal transportation isn’t your style, the Public Transit System is also available. Buses run from several different points in town down to Main Street as well as the theater venues. For routes and schedules, visit http://www.parkcity.org/index.aspx?page=929.

Charge your phone on Main Street

If you are a busy festival-goer hopping from movie to movie, there is no need to worry about your cell phone dying on you in the middle of the day. AT&T has a free charging station located in the Independent Filmmakers Lounge at 710 Main Street, the Marriott Courtyard Summit.

The lounge will have charging lockers where Sundance attendees can securely leave their smartphones to charge while they head on to the next film. The lockers will only be available from Friday, Jan. 16, through Sunday, Jan. 18.

Walking between venues an option

The Sundance Film Festival usually leaves Park City congested with traffic. If you don’t want to brave the public transit system or pay for transportation services, walking is another option. Sundance brochures are available throughout town, and they include walking timetables.

For example, from The Egyptian Theatre to the Library Center is about a 22-minute walk, just under a mile. There is a mile between The Yarrow Theatre and the Prospector Square Theatre, and it is estimated to take about 18 minutes. All other routes are listed in the "Getting Around" brochures.
