Mountain Line Student Bus Passes – The Cool Ride to School

Do you have a child attending a charter school not offering traditional bus service, or one whose extracurricular activities don’t line up with the school bus schedule? Are you attending college, but don’t have access to a vehicle? Mountain Line public transit is the perfect solution to these problems, with cost-saving student bus passes for both K-12 and college students.

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 and Mountain Link system for the duration of the pass.

Any student attending a university, college, technical school, or any other post-high school educational program, is able to purchase the Mountain Line college/university pass. The semester pass costs $99, with the fall pass valid from Aug. 15 – Dec. 15 and the spring pass valid from Jan. 5 – May 15. An annual pass, valid for the entire calendar year from the date of purchase, is available for $239. Northern Arizona University students ride the Mountain Link system, which connects the campus with downtown Flagstaff and Woodlands Village, free of charge, but this pass will give them access to the rest of the Mountain Line system.

Student passes are 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 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 for additional information.
