Tap on. Tap off.
To make your riding experience easier, UTA has an electronic fare card (EFC) system. With the system you can ride UTA with your EFC card (like Eco Pass, Ed Pass or FAREPAY). You can also use your smart phone with a mobile wallet app like Android Pay or Apple Pay.
You can use the EFC system by simply tapping your EFC card or phone (with mobile wallet app activated) on a UTA electronic card reader. Note that mobile wallet apps such as Apple Pay or Google Pay are different from the UTA GoRide mobile ticket app; mobile tickets are visually checked, not tapped.
You may be wondering why you should tap. Tapping helps you because it:
- Shows that you have made a valid fare payment (prevents getting tickets from UTA Police)
- Sends a message about which routes you use most, so that UTA can better evaluate and improve services
- Gives you a transfer credit on most services
- Ensures you are charged the correct amount (failure to tap on and off of FrontRunner will charge you the full fare amount).
