U-Pass Pilot Program

Metro is launching a new Universal College Student Transit Pass (U-Pass) Pilot Program. Upon board approval of the program, the pilot will begin in fall 2016. Some key changes in 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
