I like this move by UTA. Now only if the route was better.

When are the trolleys  supposed  to start running?

Agreed! This is the "Farmington Trolley" though.

According to the linked news story and linked tweet from @rideuta, it is already running.

The Lagoon shuttle runs daily 363 days a year.

I realize the monorail thing is a no-go because of the big spaghetti bowl I-15/Legacy interchange in the way, but an aerial tram should be able to just pass over all that stuff with little to no interference with what's below.
Yay

Lagoon could just build their own subway system! *joke*

The Las Vegas Monorail, Sao Paulo Monorail and City Center Tram (and other Doppelmayer Cableliners) in Las Vegas proved that point wrong. Lagoon would have to work with UDOT on such a project.

Even as a Joke, Tunneling and Subways are outrageously expensive....look at MTA's 2nd Ave. Subway Line.

That's not what I'm talking about, I mean an aerial tram, like the one at Snowbird, a big brother to skyride. They'd obviously have to work with UDOT to span all that stuff, but I think they could span it with towers on either side of the big mess of roads and nothing in the middle of it.

There is a good chunk of land near the Station Park Chic Fil a that could house the station on that side. Where would you have the station on the Lagoon side reside?

There's a reason why the Roosevelt Island Tramway in New York is the only Transit Tramway in the Country (since 1976). A Doppelmayer Cableliner or Monorail have built in Evacuation Platforms and Catwalks. An aerial evacuation that would shut down a major interstate doesn't sound so logical.
