How does the U-Pass program work?
U-Pass is a group discount program, which lowers the cost of transit for University of Alberta students.
The U-Pass program is available for all students, graduate and undergraduate, registered in classes in the Fall, Winter and Spring/Summer Terms. The U-Pass is much lower than the cost of purchasing monthly passes for the same period of time because costs are spread over a large participant base.
U-Pass fees are collected by the University and transferred to transit providers to help fund the transit service.
