Mountain Line Makes Getting to School Easy and Convenient

FLAGSTAFF, AZ (July 18, 2017) – It’s officially back-to-school season, and Mountain Line student semester and annual transit passes are an essential part of the school supply checklist.

Mountain Line offers a safe and reliable transportation option for students to get to and from school and other activities. There are eight routes traversing Flagstaff, stopping within walking distance of most Flagstaff schools. Mountain Line continues to offer route deviations on Routes 2 and 3 to better serve BASIS School and Northland Preparatory Academy (NPA) during the school year. Flagstaff Arts & Leadership Academy (FALA) students can also take advantage of supplemental morning and afternoon service on Route 5, which offers more options to get to and from school.

Flagstaff students enrolled in a K-12 school can purchase a Mountain Line semester pass for $49. Fall semester passes are valid Aug. 1 – Dec. 31 and spring semester passes are valid Jan. 1 – Jun. 15. An annual pass, valid for the entire calendar year from the date of purchase, is available for $119. Both passes are valid on the entire Mountain Line system for the duration of the pass. Any parent who purchases a pass will receive a complimentary day pass to test out the bus system and accompany their K-12 student on a trip.

Mountain Line is making it easier-than-ever to get a pass this year by holding satellite pass sales events at the Flagstaff Community Market. Find the blue bus at these two events to purchase a pass, ask questions, receive trip planning trips, and more:

  • Sunday, July 23: Flagstaff Community Market in the City Hall Parking Lot from 8 a.m. – noon
  • Wednesday, July 26: Sunnyside Community Market at Pine Forest School (Cedar & Fourth St.) from 4-7 p.m.

Student passes are also available for purchase at the NAIPTA office at 3773 N. Kaspar Dr. between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. In order to purchase the pass, all students must show proof of enrollment and bring a student ID, if applicable. Passes can also be purchased at www.mountainline.az.gov and will be mailed to students.

The NAIPTA front desk staff is happy to answer any questions about routes and the best way for students to access their individual schools. Call 928.779.6624 or visit www.mountainline.az.gov/students for additional information.
