Parking and Directions

Pioneer Theatre Company is located on the University of Utah campus, right across the street from Rice-Eccles Football stadium.

University parking for PTC performances is FREE, and there is a fair amount of it within a two-block distance of Simmons PMT. You’ll find better parking than at most downtown events, and you don’t have to pay for it.

  • The 12 hour reserved parking stalls, the ones that are reserved until 8 p.m., ARE available to PTC patrons during performances. Holders of those permits know those spots will not be held for them during PTC performances.
  • The 24 hour reserved spots ARE NOT available.
  • The lot to the north of the old Field House is available to PTC patrons at no cost.

We are also located near Stadium Station on the University Line of TRAX light rail, which serves Salt Lake County all the way from Sandy to Daybreak, and even connects to the FrontRunner going north to Odgen and south to Provo.

We advise most patrons to park in the Rice-Eccles Stadium parking lot, which is a one-block walk from the theatre. Patrons who park in this lot should walk through the tunnel which passes under South Campus Drive (400 South) and will take them directly to the sidewalk leading to Simmons PMT. The tunnel is located in the northeast corner of the Rice-Eccles lot.

Football Schedule Conflicts—Consider alternate transportation to the theatre on these dates.

  • Fri., Sept 23rd at 7 p.m 
  • Sat., Oct. 29th at TBA
