What is the Hive Pass?
The Hive Pass is a program of Salt Lake City offered to all City residents with the goal of making transit more affordable and accessible. Your home address must be in Salt Lake City boundaries to be eligible for a Hive Pass. Having a personalized pass in your pocket makes riding transit more convenient – no more searching for exact change for your fare.
The Hive Pass is now a monthly pass that activates on the first day of the month for which it is purchased. You can purchase the pass at any time, and the cost will always be $42 so purchasing the pass at or very near the first of the month will help you make the most of the pass. Additionally, you may pre-purchase for the next month and your Hive Pass will activate on the 1st day of the upcoming month.
The cost of the pass to resident is $42.00 per month, a 50% discount from a regular monthly UTA pass. The remaining 50% is covered by Salt Lake City (30%), and UTA (20%). You may pre-purchase for an entire year for $475. That is an additional $29 discount!
Use the Hive Pass on regular buses, TRAX, and the S-Line streetcar. If you are transferring from TRAX or Bus to Frontrunner, the pass will be valid for one station on Frontrunner. You must ‘tap on and tap off’ with the pass for each trip.
Hive Pass holders are entitled to one free FrontRunner station. Each station beyond that is $.60. You do need to pre-purchase the discounted fare at an automated ticket machine. The machine will prompt you through and will calculate the discounted fare. You are able to purchase round trip ticket at that point.
