Student Bus Pass

Service Interruption —

Please note: The Universal Bus Pass is suspended for the Fall 2020 & Winter 2021 semesters.

To purchase a Post-Secondary Pass, please follow these instructions.

Since 1995, the Central Student Association and the Graduate Student Association have negotiated a bus pass that offers unlimited access to Guelph Transit at a significantly lower rate than the public. Each renegotiation of the UPass is voted on by the student body. With transit routes spread throughout the city, students can make any neighbourhood their home. The CSA / GSA Transit Committee works with Guelph Transit to ensure service routes and schedules are reflective of students’ needs. Bus passes are available to both part- and full-time students enrolled in on-campus courses.
