SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City and the Utah Transit Authority are extending the current pilot program for the new Hive Pass.

“I hope our residents take advantage of this pilot extension to make the Hive Pass part of their personal mobility options,” Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker said. “Moving out of our cars and onto public transit is one of the single best decisions we can make to have a positive impact on our ongoing air quality challenges.”

The Hive Pass pilot program, launched in March, was created through a partnership between Salt Lake City and UTA and was initially scheduled to conclude at the end of August. The one-year pass is good on all UTA TRAX, FrontRunner, bus and S-line Streetcar services and available for an upfront payment of $350 or for $360 in 12 monthly installments.

After completion of the Hive Pass pilot program, Salt Lake City and UTA will evaluate the performance of the effort and determine whether the pass will become a permanent option for residents.
