Mountain Line Makes Getting to School Easy, Convenient, And Safe

FLAGSTAFF, AZ (July 23, 2018) – 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.

Mountain Line has made several recent upgrades to the safety and security of the transit system, including the addition of new exterior and interior cameras that can be viewed in real time from the main office. Mountain Line also added a Safety Supervisor position to the team. This position is responsible for riding Mountain Line routes during peak times, and working with passengers to offer assistance and enforcement of policies. The Safety Supervisor supports Mountain Line’s ability to be an efficient and safe transit system and adds a level of support to both drivers and riders.

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. To purchase the pass, all students must show proof of enrollment and bring a student ID, if applicable. Passes can also be purchased at https://mountainline.az.gov/product-category/student-passes/ and will be mailed to students.
