Firstly, their services are available 24/7, ensuring that no matter what time your flight arrives or departs, there will be a shuttle available for you. This level of flexibility can be especially beneficial if you’re traveling during odd hours or have last-minute changes to your itinerary.

Secondly, Shuttle Express offers door-to-door service. This means that they will pick you up from your desired location (such as the airport) and drop you off directly at your destination within the city. This eliminates the need for additional transfers or finding public transportation options.

Furthermore, Shuttle Express prioritizes customer satisfaction by providing well-trained drivers who are knowledgeable about the local area. They can offer recommendations on popular attractions, restaurants, and hotels if needed.

Types of Shuttles Available

Shuttle Express offers a variety of shuttle options depending on your preferences and group size. They have shared-ride shuttles that can accommodate multiple passengers heading in the same direction. This option is cost-effective and allows you to split the fare with other travelers.

For those looking for a more private experience, Shuttle Express also offers private shuttles. These shuttles provide a dedicated vehicle for your group, ensuring that you have exclusive use of the vehicle during your journey.

Additionally, Shuttle Express provides luxury SUVs and vans for those who prefer a more upscale transportation experience. These vehicles are perfect for corporate events, special occasions, or simply if you want to travel in style and comfort.

Booking and Reservations

Booking a Shuttle Express service in Salt Lake City is a straightforward process. You can make reservations online through their website or by calling their customer service hotline. It’s recommended to book your shuttle in advance to secure your preferred time slot, especially during peak travel seasons.

When making a reservation, provide all necessary details such as your pickup location, drop-off destination, flight information (if applicable), and the number of passengers traveling with you. Shuttle Express will then confirm your reservation and provide instructions on where to meet your driver upon arrival.

In conclusion, if you’re traveling to Salt Lake City and need reliable transportation services, Shuttle Express is an excellent choice. With their flexible scheduling options, door-to-door service, various shuttle types available, and easy booking process, they are sure to provide a hassle-free transportation experience during your visit.

How SCGW Started

In 2015, following a productive and fun-filled National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), a number of the writers who had joined the NaNo fueled chat stuck around to continue on with their writing. The grueling intensity of a month of writing towards a 50k goal did not dissuade the founding members from following the desire to hone their craft. After realizing that they shared a common dedication, they decided to become part of the League of Utah Writers as a downtown Salt Lake City writing chapter. The Salt City Genre Writers Chapter was born.

Now a very active, friendly, and peer to peer driven writing group, the Salt City Genre Writers now hosts nearly seventy members regularly with nearly three times that found on our online Discord. Weekly meetings, informal write-ins, NaNoWriMo hosted write-ins, critique groups, publication opportunities, and much more are available within our chapter.

Writing Group Mentor: Community Writing Series - Millcreek Save to Favorites

Organization: slcc community writing center.

Writing group mentors coordinate and facilitate ongoing group meetings for the SLCC Community Writing Center's (CWC) Community Writing Series (CWS). There are CWS writing groups with different emphases that meet all over Salt Lake County. As a mentor you have the opportunity to create an atmosphere where writers can share their work and receive thoughtful feedback. This helps enable the CWC’s mission of promoting writing and diversity within the community. In addition, volunteer mentors find that their own writing improves as they assist others in their writing. Members of our writing groups include novices and experts. They work on most forms of writing. This includes but is not limited to short stories, long fiction, essays, memoirs, poems, plays, and screenplays. Most writing would be rated PG, but the group is open to R, even somewhat beyond R. Members are highly talented, close knit, and supportive of each other.

Key Volunteer Mentor Responsibilities:

  • Track group meetings
  • Provide constructive feedback to group participants
  • Participate with your own writing
  • Be inviting to and collaborative with community writers
  • Understand group dynamics while being flexible, nonjudgmental, and creative
  • Assist in yearly group publication

Time and location Commitment: This position will take place in the Millcreek Library. There is already a group of interested writers who are looking for a mentor, when you would all like to meet and for how long will depend on everyone deciding. We ask that group mentors commit to a minimum of six months of service.

Group mentors will report to the Community Writing Series program coordinator.

A qualified mentor will be interested in the writing process, sensitive to diverse populations, patient, dependable, and open-minded.

Orientation and training for this position will be provided by the SLCC Community Writing Center. All volunteers with the Community Writing Center must first attend a volunteer orientation. Orientations are held every Wednesday around 6 pm either on zoom or at our location a 210 E. 400 S. Ste. 8 on the plaza at Library Square in Salt Lake City.

Thank you for your interest in strengthening our community of writers with your time and talents!

Mission Statement

The SLCC Community Writing Center (CWC) supports, motivates and educates people of all abilities and educational backgrounds who want to use writing for practical needs, civic engagement and personal expression. The CWC is based on the principles of Education, Community, and Collaboration. The CWC has historically challenged and should continue to challenge the assumptions... that some types of writing are more valuable than others that publication validates a piece of writing that higher education is somehow separate from community education; and that higher educational institutions can know what a community needs or wants without entering into full and mutually-beneficial partnership with that community.


The CWC was founded on the premise that everyone can write with assistance and support from others. Based on the model of student writing centers that most college and universities have on campus to serve student writing needs, the CWC serves the entire Salt Lake metropolitian area community.

Because of a strong commitment to the community, Salt Lake Community College funds the CWC. SLCC values the variety of learning opportunities the CWC provides and is dedicated to providing on-going support for its programs.

These programs include Writing Coaching, Writing Workshops, and the DiverseCity Writing Series. The CWC also partners with local community organizations and governmental agencies to empower their clients, staff and volunteers through writing.

The CWC opened to the public in October 2001 in the Artspace Bridge Projects multi-use complext just across the street from the Salt Lake City homeless services district. In November 2005, the CWC moved to its current location in the Plaza of the SLC Main Library.
