Beginning Monday, Aug. 20, Brigham Young University employees can purchase UTA passes through UTA’s website. For the coming school year, UTA will offer more options for BYU employees than last year, including passes for fall semester, winter semester, spring/summer terms and 30-day passes.
A fall semester pass will be valid from Aug. 27, 2012, through Dec. 14, 2012. Winter semester passes will be valid from Jan. 7, 2013, to April 26, 2013. A spring/summer term pass be valid from April 30, 2013, through Aug. 16, 2013.
To see the prices and purchase a pass, visit rideuta.com/studentpass. Once there, select BYU from the institution menu and follow the directions (select only staff and faculty pass options). After payment, print out the verification of payment and take it to the Information Desk or ID Center in the Wilkinson Student Center or to Student Services on the main floor of the Abraham Smoot Building.
Because of a small reserve fund, BYU will again subsidize each pass until the fund is depleted. The subsidy will equal $10 off each 30-day pass and $50 off each semester pass. The subsidy amount shows online after selecting the pass, and that amount will appear when viewing the bottom of the page.
All passes will be available as both regular and premium passes. Premium allows the pass holder to ride express buses and FrontRunner commuter trains.
When riding UTA transports, be prepared to show the BYU ID with a UTA pass. Also, be sure to tap on and tap off when riding.
Passes are not transferrable. They cannot be shared, loaned, sold or passed on to others in any way.
