U-Pass Pilot Program
Metro has launched a new Universal College Student Transit Pass (U-Pass) Pilot Program. This reduced-fare transit pass offers students unlimited rides on Metro’s Rail and bus lines and is designed to streamline the process of purchasing college student discount transit passes. The pilot will be launching at six schools in the fall of 2016: California State University, Northridge (CSUN), Pasadena City College, Rio Hondo, Los Angeles Trade Technical College, American Career College and West Coast University.
Some key factors to the new program include:
- Sign up online through college website or in person on campus
- Fee to participate paid to college instead of to Metro
- Computer chip sticker placed directly on school ID instead of requiring separate photo TAP card
- Pass is valid for whole semester, including breaks
- Lower units requirement to allow more part-time students to participate
