Calling all UTA riders with a March birthday! UTA turns 47 on Friday, March 3. Celebrate your birthday month with us by visiting Salt Lake Central Station from 7 to 9 a.m. on 3/3/17. The first 50 people to show us proof of their March birthday with a valid government-issued photo ID will receive a free pass good for UTA rail and bus transportation for seven consecutive days. The first person to show us proof of their March 3 birthday will receive a free 30-day pass. We’ll also have cupcakes, while supplies last, for any rider who would like to enjoy our birthday celebration.
UTA was founded on March 3, 1970, when residents from Salt Lake City, Sandy, Murray and Bingham voted to form a public transportation district. What started as a fleet of 68 used buses with routes in just a few cities would expand to provide service across the Wasatch Front. In 1999, UTA opened its first light rail line, and in 2008, FrontRunner began offering commuter rail service to residents. Today, we cover more than 1,400 square miles and serve 75 cities in six counties. In 2015, UTA provided more than 47.5 million bus and rail trips to riders.
*Please note that free passes are good for use on all UTA services except paratransit, ski and PC-SLC Connect buses.
