Mountain Line Makes Getting to School Easy, Convenient, And Safe
FLAGSTAFF, AZ (July 28, 2021) – 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 nine 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.
Per federal law, Mountain Line requires riders to wear face masks all vehicles. Buses are also fully sanitized each evening and hand sanitizer is available on board all buses. Families are encouraged to download two useful apps – Transit and See Say Now. The Transit app is replacing Mountain Line’s previous FLGRide app to provide real time arrival information and bus tracking. The See Say Now app allows riders to get in touch directly with Mountain Line’s Dispatch office, right from their phone.
Student passes are available for purchase at the Mountain Line office at 3773 N. Kaspar Dr. between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (closed from 12-1), 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/fares-passes-online/ and will be mailed to students.
The Mountain Line 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 https://mountainline.az.gov/students/ for additional information.
