SHUTTLE SERVICE TRANSITIONS TO VIA FOR WINTER 2020

 UTA will suspend shuttle buses on campus until the Spring semester begins effective Monday, November 30, 2020. However, students with an active UTA email will be able to sign-up for VIA and request rides to any of the current UTA shuttle stops and shopping destinations (Aldi, Fielder Plaza, Lincoln Square, Walmart, and Downtown Arlington) for free. To receive a free ride, download the VIA app from the Appstore. Sign-up for your free account using your UTA email. Request a ride to any current UTA bus stop Monday-Friday and UTA will cover the cost of your ride!

Questions? Visit uta.edu/pats or email parking@uta.edu

To qualify for UTA to pay your fare on Via, students must:

  • use an account registered to a @mavs.uta.edu email address

1) If you’re an existing VIA user, you will need to change your email to your @mavs.uta.edu. Also, please allow approximately 5 minutes for the system to register your email.

2) Start the trip from any of the MavMover’s existing shuttle stops or shopping destinations

3) End the trip at any of the MavMover’s existing shuttle stops or shopping destinations

Only one free fare per trip request. Additional passengers are $3 each.  If students want to travel together, students should all request the same trip at the same time. The Via app will combine the riders into one vehicle depending on capacity and each student will have their fare covered by UTA.

Each student is limited to 10 rides maximum per week.

Valid: November 30,2020 – January 15, 2021
