Are you tired of being stuck behind the wheel, navigating traffic jams, and endlessly searching for parking spots? It's time to embrace a new way to commute — jump aboard and join the thriving community of bus riders!
Imagine reclaiming your valuable time while you relax, catch up on work, or indulge in your favorite book. Plus, you’ll be lowering carbon emissions just in time for the Clear the Air Challenge this month.
- Low-Stress Travel: Leave the driving to us! Say goodbye to road rage and the frustrations of navigating congested streets — especially during those upcoming summer events. Sit back, relax, and let our skilled drivers navigate the roads while you enjoy a comfortable journey.
- Buses When You Need Them: Enjoy the convenience of buses that run every 15 minutes, with 10 frequent-service routes in Salt Lake County, two in Utah County, and one in Weber County designed to connect you to other UTA modes, local businesses, healthcare, schools, parks, and multiple entertainment hotspots. UTA is built to serve you, providing seamless connectivity throughout our multi-modal system.
- Better Air for All of Us: By opting for the bus, you actively reduce carbon emissions, lower your carbon footprint, and contribute to a cleaner and healthier environment for future generations.
The Clean the Air Challenge starts this month with the goal to eliminate 100,000 single-occupant trips to save two million miles. Take the next steps to join the challenge! Show a bus operator or train host that you have registered for the challenge to get a limited edition UTA sticker.
According to the Utah Division of Air Quality, if all drivers living along the Wasatch Front were to park their cars for just one day each week, vehicle emissions would be reduced by 6,500 tons per year.
- Get More Done: Time is precious and should be spent on things you love. Catch up on emails, read a book, listen to a podcast, or simply unwind and recharge.
And have fun! Consider doing our bus scavenger hunt this month while you ride. It’s an easy way to explore our Frequent Service Network with the chance to win weekly prizes.
- Save Money: Riding the bus saves you money on parking and on the wear and tear of your vehicle — and don’t forget those ever-rising gas prices!
According to the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the average household spends 16 cents of every dollar on transportation, and 93% of this goes to buying, maintaining, and operating cars, the largest expenditure after housing.
A household can save nearly $10,000 by taking public transportation and living with one less car.
- Connect with Your Community: Commuting on the bus offers a unique opportunity to connect with your community. Interact with fellow passengers, make new friends, or build professional networks. Let your journey become an avenue for socializing and expanding your horizons.
Embrace the freedom, convenience, and camaraderie of being part of a thriving community of bus riders. Start your trip today!
