Sun Metro Adding New Express Routes for College Students
Sun Metro has introduced new express routes which connect students and passengers with El Paso Community College, UTEP campuses and several Transfer Centers throughout the City.
The new Sun Metro service Route 80 EPCC Express starts on Monday, Aug. 24 along with the re-activation of Route 70 University Express, which travels to UTEP, helping connect students and passengers with our city’s local colleges.
Route 80 EPCC Express:
- El Paso Community College (EPCC) Trans Mountain campus
- Northgate Transfer Center, 9347 Dyer
- Eastside Transfer Center, 1165 Sunmount
- EPCC Valle Verde campus
- Mission Valley Transfer Center, 9065 Alameda.
Route 80 will offer service every hour during peak hours (6-10 a.m. and 2-6 p.m.) and every two hours during non-peak hours.
Route 70 University Express:
- Eastside Transfer Center, 1165 Sunmount, to the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP)
- El Paso Community College (EPCC) Rio Grande campus.
Route 70 will offer service every 30 minutes during peak hours (6-10 a.m. and 3-6 p.m.) and every hour during non-peak hours.
Both routes will operate from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters.
Both EPCC and UTEP students can take advantage of Sun Metro’s reduced student fare for $1 per one-way trip or better yet, purchase a weekly pass for $7, or a monthly pass $30, which is good for an unlimited number of bus trips during the life of the pass.
Monthly passes may be purchased at the Eastside Transfer Center, Five Points Transfer Center, Downtown Transfer Center, any of the city’s public libraries or by mail.
Weekly passes may be purchased on any Sun Metro fixed-route bus traveling within the city limits. Pre-paid passes can be used on any fixed-route bus, except County Route 83.
