The Edmonton area “U-Pass” is a transit fare program providing participating post-secondary students with unlimited access to regular Edmonton, St. Albert Transit (StAT), Strathcona County Transit, Fort Saskatchewan Transit, Spruce Grove Transit and Leduc Transit services during fall (September – December) and winter (January – April) academic terms.
The University of Alberta and MacEwan University also offer Spring/Summer U-Pass (May - August). The U-Pass program is a partnership of local municipalities, post-secondary institutions and their student governments.
U-Pass does not include charter, special event or contracted services provided by ETS, St. Albert, Strathcona County, Fort Saskatchewan, Spruce Grove or Leduc Transit to outlying communities, or specialized handibus transit services offered by any of the municipal transit providers. U-Pass is accepted on Edmonton Transit DATS (Disabled Adult Transit Service) service.
Participation in the U-Pass program is available to any publicly-funded post-secondary institutions in the Edmonton region which have been included by Alberta Learning in their “Six Sector” classification model. Visit www.eae.alberta.ca for further information.
