UWSA U-Pass Bus Pass or Post-Secondary Semester Passes

The U-Pass is a discounted universal bus pass program. Students pay a fee at the beginning of each term and receive a bus pass that is valid for the entire academic year (September – April), for use anytime, anywhere across the city. The original U-Pass was discontinued for the 2021-22 academic year. The UWSA recognizes that some students need to access transit. Therefore, in the absence of the UWSA U-Pass, students will be able to buy the Post-Secondary Semester Passes at the UWSA Info Booth, Shoppers Drug Mart, and 7-Eleven at the rate of $283/semester.
