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

Get On Board - UVU, UTA, UVX, BYU

The Utah Valley Express is a new public transportation service in Orem and Provo. Its route connects the Orem and Provo FrontRunner stations with 18 stops in-between.

The UVX’s schedule aligns with FrontRunner trains, with services running Monday-Saturday. UVX buses arrive every six minutes during peak times, and every 10-15 minutes during off-peak times*.

For half its route, the UVX has its own lane, allowing buses to move through traffic in some of the most congested areas in the valley. Ride it to commute to campus, travel to malls and shopping centers, or shuttle to big events without the hassle of parking.

The new UVX buses are hybrid-electric vehicles. With a capacity of 13,000 riders a day, the full UVX fleet can replace thousands of personal car trips. By choosing to ride rather than drive, riders help eliminate greenhouse gas emissions.

*Wait times increase during early morning/late evening operations.

Route 830X

Dependents and spouses of UVU students and current employees are eligible to receive free UTA passes. Children between the ages of 6-24 who live with the student or employee qualify as dependents. Children 5 and under ride free with a fare paying adult.

Dependents must be registered online prior to receiving their ID.

Dependents must be accompanied by the related student or employee to get their ID processed at Campus Connection.

Priority times for Dependent passes are 5pm to 8pm Monday through Thursday.
