UTA Public Transit Pass: V School has a student discount with UTA for public transit passes. These passes allow students to ride the Bus, Trax, and Frontrunner while you're a student of V School. Cost of the pass is a $150.00 rental fee for the 12 weeks. This is how all of the staff that don't live in walking distance commute to campus. The utah public transit is very comfortable.

Green Bikes: These bikes are dotted throughout the downtown area and V School provides a discount code to use them. This is an annual pass that is offered through Impact Hub at the cost of $5.00, that’s not a typo:$5.00. This is because as a student of VS you are a member of Impact Hub. Score!
Instructions for purchasing a pass for Green Bikes will be shared on the first day of class.
Ride your bike!

Sneaky ways to not pay for parking that take a bit of extra effort
Sneaky way # 1
UTA Trax system is free downtown (see maps below).
Park at the Salt Lake Central FrontRunner parking lot for free and hop on the Blue Trax line. This will bring you a half a block from campus. Get off at the City Creek or Gallivan Center platform.
Sneaky way # 2
Parking by the State Capital and walking down about 2 blocks. It’s a bit of a hike but saves $$$.
Same goes for parking on the east side of the city then walking, scootering or biking about 3-4 blocks.
