Student Bus Pass

Since 1995, the CSA and GSA 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.

Winter 2020 Refunds: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Guelph Transit was made free to ride on March 18, 2020. Shortly thereafter, the CSA reached out to Transit and the City to request a refund to students who had paid for the Winter 2020 semesterly service. An agreement was reached to provide a pro-rated refund in the form of a credit to students who had been charged the fee on their W20 fees, the University will be administering the refunds.
