U-Pass Program

What is the U-Pass Program?

The Universal College Student Transit Pass ( U-Pass ) provides college students of participating schools with greater fare discounts and an expedited activation process that is administered directly on campus.  It is good for unlimited rides on all Metro services in L.A. County, including Metro Rail, Metro Rapid and Express buses, and local buses!

  • Rates will vary depending on each college's fare subsidy program and will either match the Metro College/Vocational Reduced Fare TAP card rate or provide even greater savings.
  • U-Pass TAP sticker is applied to the back of a student's ID
  • Schools are only billed for actual boardings @ $0.75/boarding
  • U-Pass FAQs
