UT is proud to present the new and improved T Transit System. “The T” provides our students, staff, faculty, and visitors a safe, convenient, and efficient campuswide transportation service. Service is fare-free for all passengers.
Redesigning the new T fleet began as a student initiative. Each new bus incorporates clean design and interactive technology. Features include:
- Four USB charging stations located at the back of each vehicle.
- Real-time GPS tracking to monitor current location and arrival time.
- The UT mobile app integrates the T’s GPS tracking map, route stop information, and news updates on route and service changes.
- Front-of-vehicle bicycle racks.
- All T vehicles run on biodiesel.
- All T vehicles are accessible to passengers with disabilities.
UT selected First Transit to operate the T, which begins its service June 1, 2013. First Transit operates more than twenty campus transit systems and has more than fifty years of private transit experience.
