Public transit appeals to people for varied reasons. Whether the environment is a concern or someone simply wants to save money on a car and parking, public transit might be a great option.
Utah has a robust public transit system that includes buses, TRAX and the FrontRunner train. The Utah Transit Authority offers many different passes to the public, but a reduced-cost option is available to UVU students.
What is it?
The UTA Transit Pass brings together all the UTA transit options, except for ski resort transit, for use by the pass holder.
Students must be enrolled in at least one full-credit class to obtain a pass.
Where can you get it?
Campus Connection, which is on the ground floor of the Sorensen Student Center building, is the only location on campus to purchase a UTA Transit Pass.
How much does it cost?
There is a yearly fee of 90 dollars. The pass is valid for one year, from August to August. The pass expires every August, regardless of when it was purchased.
How does it work?
The pass is added to the student identification card. If you do not already have a student ID card, Campus Connection is also the place to get one.
Once you have the pass added to your student ID card, all you have to do is swipe when using the UTA system.
