Parking and Directions

Parking and Directions

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

The last football game that affects our patron parking in 2018 is Saturday, November 10, 2018 (Sweeney Todd). If you have tickets for this performance, matinee or evening, please consider taking public transportation, Lyft/Uber or carpooling. 

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

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 takes them directly to the sidewalk leading to Simmons PMT. The tunnel is located in the northeast corner of the Rice-Eccles lot.


Take TRAX and leave your car behind. 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.
