Utah Valley Express, or UVX for short, is a bus rapid transit (BRT) line similar to TRAX that features articulated buses that will reduce travel times by using exclusive bus lanes and traffic signal priority. Additionally, the line will feature station amenities such as real-time electronic displays showing vehicle locations, level boarding platforms and high-end shelters. The line will connect FrontRunner with major Utah Valley destinations such as universities, employment centers, shopping malls, entertainment and downtown Provo and Orem.
What is BRT?
BRT is an innovative, high-capacity public transit solution that can significantly improve urban mobility and increase travel choices in a community. BRT uses specialized buses on roadways and dedicated lanes to quickly and efficiently transport passengers to their destinations. BRT systems can easily be customized to community needs and incorporate state-of-the-art, low-cost technologies that result in more passengers and less congestion.

- 18 stations
- 51 percent exclusive bus lanes
- Up to 18 buses on the road at one time

What to expect on opening day, Aug. 13
Aug.13 - Utah Valley Express (UVX) Buses Start Service
- UVX bus service, originally scheduled for completion in spring 2019, will begin 9 months early in order to support the transit needs of Utah Valley University (UVU) and Brigham Young University (BYU). Portions of the system will continue to be under construction through fall of 2018.
- In order to start service early and to accommodate ongoing construction, UVX buses will use multiple designated stops on the right side of the street, at or near permanent UVX stations. Look for identifiable markers at the stops.
- Buses will run every 6 minutes during morning and evening commute times, every 10 minutes during the day, and every 15 minutes in the evening. (Frequencies up to 60 minutes in the early morning and late at night)
- Amenities such as center running UVX stations, electronic real-time signage, dedicated bus lanes and traffic signal priority will roll out as construction continues, making the system even more efficient.
