UTA Transit Pass
FREE UTA Premium Transit Pass
Who gets a pass? Westminster provides free transit passes to all students actively taking courses, working, or living on campus. Student passes are only active during terms in which students are enrolled in classes, working as a student employee, and/or living in campus housing. If you are not enrolled for classes, working as a student employee, or living on campus in May or Summer term, your pass will be deactivated for that term. All faculty and staff currently employed by the college are also provided passes.
How do I get a pass? UTA Premium Transit Passes are available for FREE to all current Westminster College students, faculty, and staff. Instead of a separate UTA pass card, all Westminster ID cards issued after 2010 can be activated or deactivated as UTA passes. No additional action is required to use your ID as a transit pass.
How do I use my pass? Simply tap your Westminster ID on the electronic card reader located on or near the bus, TRAX, or train as you get on and again AS YOU EXIT. Failure to tap on AND OFF can result in a ticket for you and significant added expense to Westminster, which pays for every trip taken by our riders.
Can I use my pass to ride TRAX and/or FrontRunner for free?
Can I use my pass to ride the ski buses for free?
How do I figure out how which bus to take and when? UTA's website www.rideuta.com has an online Trip Planner. Just enter your starting and ending locations and time and it will generate your route options. You can also pick up maps and schedules at the Concierge Desk in Shaw.
Which UTA routes stop at campus? UTA route 220 stops on 1300 East at campus and connects to Trax at the University of Utah and Highland Drive to the south. Route 17 stops on campus along 1700 South and runs between the 2100 South Trax station and the University of Utah. Find other nearby routes online at www.rideuta.com.
Where can I get a transit schedule/map? These are available at the Concierge Desk in Shaw Student Center or online at www.rideuta.com.
Will UTA have access to my personal information?
What if I lose my Westminster ID?
Why isn't my card working? If your card is getting a red light when tapping on/off the buses or Trax, submit your problem to UTA at www.rideuta.com. If your card does not trigger a red or green light when tapping, you will need a replacement card (available from the reception desk in HWAC). Do not store Westminster ID cards next to any other cards with tap capability.
