What is the U-Pass program?

The U-Pass is a mandatory bus pass program for all graduate and undergraduate students who are registered full-time at the University of Ottawa, and are taking at least one in-person course, or completing a CO-OP work term, or going on an outgoing exchange. 

The U-Pass has come into effect through student referendums and through collaboration with OC Transpo and STO.

The U-Pass is a compulsory fee for all eligible students.
