ecoPASS

The ecoPASS, an annual Mountain Line city bus pass provided at no charge to all Northern Arizona University employees, is now available. Pick up your free ecoPASS at Parking and Shuttle Services, Centennial building 91, during university business hours.

ecoPASS Benefits

The ecoPASS isn’t just about saving money. By riding the Mountain Line shuttle with an ecoPASS, you can:

  • save wear and tear on your vehicle
  • help promote the university’s goal of increased sustainability
  • cut gas consumption
  • reduce campus traffic congestion
  • reduce air pollution
  • expand the range of cyclists and walkers
  • relax on your way to work

Guaranteed Ride Home

In addition to unlimited public transit access, ecoPASS gives you access to the Guaranteed Ride Home program. This program allows employees who commute to work using their ecoPASS to use a taxi for emergencies at no charge. Emergencies include, but are not limited to:

  • illness or injury experienced by you or a family member
  • damage to your home or property by fire, burglary, or acts of nature
  • university-wide emergencies where no other travel options are available
  • unscheduled overtime (supervisor authorization is required)

When an employee has an emergency on a day he or she commutes to work via Mountain Line, a signed voucher will be issued by Human Resources and the employee will call a taxi from the provider list. Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority (NAIPTA) will pay for the ride.
