The University of Florida Bus Pass Program is being expanded to include the spouses and partners of the university's students, faculty and staff, the city of Gainesville officials reported.

The change starts Monday with spouses and partners able to ride the city's Regional Transit System buses free by showing their Gator 1 card. The program allows for prepaid, unlimited use of the RTS regular fixed routes, the UF campus routes and the Later Gator route service. It does not include access to the Gator Aider shuttle services.

More than 27,000 employees with the city, county, Shands and UF now participate in the program, and RTS is expecting 250,000 per year to participate in the Employee Bus Pass Program.
