Paying Your Fare on Bus

UTA buses use the same electronic fare system that is used on UTA trains. Each bus entrance has an electronic card reader where you can tap a FAREPAY card, electronic pass or contactless credit card when you enter the bus and tap off when you exit.

If you are paying by cash, make sure you enter at the front of the bus. Insert your fare into the fare box next to the driver, then take a seat.

A couple of things to remember:

 

  • Make sure you have exact change because our drivers cannot make change.
  • Have your money ready before you board.
  • If you need to transfer to another bus or TRAX, get a transfer slip from the driver. This is your only proof of fare when you make your transfer. Transfer slips are only good for two hours after your initial ride.
  • If you transfer from the bus to FrontRunner, ski buses, Park City Connect buses, Paratransit or Express buses, you will need to pay additional fare or purchase an upgrade ticket.
  • Some individuals may have UTA tokens to ride. All you need is one token to ride the bus. As with the cash fare, put the token in the fare box next to the driver, then take a seat.

Paying Your Fare on FrontRunner

A valid ticket or FAREPAY card is required before you board FrontRunner. To purchase a ticket, use the ticket machines located at each FrontRunner station. These can be found near the entrances to the station platform or on the platform, depending on the station. Cash (bills and coins) and debit/credit cards are accepted at ticket machines. Ticket machines accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Your ticket will be automatically validated with the date and time when you purchase it from the machine. You may purchase one-way or round-trip tickets. Make sure to keep your ticket until after you have completed your journey.

FrontRunner tickets are valid for transfers to TRAX, S-Line and bus service up to two hours from your initial purchase. 

If you ride FrontRunner using an electronic fare card such as FAREPAY, Eco Pass, Ed Pass, Student Pass or other pass, be sure to tap it on a card reader at the station platform. Then tap off when you reach your final destination station. Remember to tap on again if you transfer to TRAX, S-Line or bus.

You can also pay for a single adult cash fare by tapping your Contactless Credit Card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa) on an electronic card reader. Smartphone applications like Apple Pay and Google Wallet can also be used for single adult cash fare.

Paying Your Fare on TRAX

A valid ticket or FAREPAY card is required before you board TRAX. To purchase a ticket, use the ticket machines located at each TRAX station. These can be found on or near the platforms at each station. Cash (bills and coins) and debit/credit cards are accepted at ticket machines. Ticket machines accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Your ticket will be automatically validated with the date and time when you purchase it from the machine. You may purchase one-way or round-trip tickets. Make sure to keep your ticket until after you have completed your trip.

Tickets are valid for transfers to other TRAX lines, S-Line and bus service up to two hours from your initial purchase. TRAX tickets are valid as transfers ($2.50 value one-way) to FrontRunner service, but customers must still purchase additional ticket and pay the difference between regular fare and premium fare, or the fare on FrontRunner.

If you use a FAREPAY card, Eco Pass, Student Pass or certain ID cards issued by organizations such as schools, employers and ski resorts be sure to tap on at the station before you board the train, then tap off when you reach your final destination by TRAX, S-Line or bus at an electronic fare reader.

You can also pay for a single adult cash fare using a contactless credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa). Smartphone applications like Apple Pay and Google Wallet can also be used for single adult cash fare.
