Free fare is valid on all UTA modes, including TRAX, FrontRunner, S-Line, bus, Ski bus, Paratransit, UTA’s On Demand service, and PC-SLC Connect.

Riders with confirmed vaccination appointments must show their appointment confirmation as proof of fare when they board, either printed, on a mobile device or on a vaccination card.

Vaccination sites are located throughout UTA’s service area. Transit routes can be found on the UTA's app; to find the best route, simply enter the vaccination site's address.

"For UTA to be a team player and help the community get vaccinated is a win-win," said Jeff Acerson, UTA Trustee.

UTA is continuing current COVID-19 safety measures, which includes disinfecting their vehicles and facilities daily, requiring face coverings, and actively promoting physical distancing.
