Deal with BYU, UVU means 100K Utah County residents to receive free bus, train passes
“Both schools are providing free passes to all students and employees — plus their spouses and dependents. UTA spokesman Carl Arky said each university will pay $1 million a year for 10 years for the deal. Combined, free passes will be given to more than 100,000 people annually, officials figure. The passes will be handed out in August as UTA launches a new $190 million Provo-Orem bus rapid transit system ($40 million of that went for highway improvements). That project has been controversial, and some local groups lost court challenges that sought to stop it. UTA also ran into an $11.3 million cost overrun, and is issuing new bonds in part to cover that.”
