Introducing the Utah Valley Express Starting August 13th, 2018!


The Utah Valley Express is a new public transportation service in Orem and Provo. Half of UVX's route consists of its own dedicated driving lane, allowing buses to breeze through traffic in some of the most congested areas in the valley. Dedicated to moving passengers fast, the UVX is scheduled to arrive at stations every six minutes during peak times, and every 10-15 minutes during off-peak times. Catch a ride to commute to campus, travel to malls and shopping centers, or shuttle to big events without the hassle of parking.

The Utah Valley Express connects the Orem FrontRunner station to the Provo FrontRunner station in 38 minutes with 18 stops in-between. Bus schedules align with FrontRunner trains, with services running Monday through Saturday.

All valid campus IDs will activate with the new free UTA pass automatically on August 1st, 2018.

Dependents of eligible faculty, staff, and students may receive their own campus IDs and UTA passes after registering online. Dependents must have the UVU Student or UVU Faculty/Staff member present in order to get their ID processed at Campus Connection.
