SALT LAKE CITY — The city’s new resident transit pass, the Hive Pass, is now available at three permanent sales locations as well as a variety of mobile sales opportunities. As part of an initial pilot program offered by Salt Lake City and Utah Transit Authority, Hive Passes are only available to residents of Salt Lake City and can be purchased for the deeply discounted rate of $350 for a year, or $360 payable in 12 monthly installments of $30. The pass is good on almost all UTA modes including TRAX, buses, Frontrunner and S-Line Streetcar. Exceptions are UTA’s special fare services like Paratransit, ski buses and Park City Connect.
Passes can only be purchased in person, and a few documents are necessary just to establish Salt Lake City residency. Visit www.ridewithhive.com for details. Also, residents who may not be sure if their address is in the city limits will find a handy tool on the website to confirm they qualify for the Hive Pass.
