Additionally, travelers may buy a round-trip fare in order to reduce the waiting time at the ticket machines for the return trip. Riders traveling together will be able to purchase the UTA group pass, which will allow up to four people to ride round trip during regular service hours and are valid after 10 a.m. each morning. These are good on the TRAX, the bus and the FrontRunner. However, these purchases are not available until 10 a.m. on each day.

There is a detailed schedule and other ticket information along with safety tips on the UTA website.
