There is currently no summer U-Pass, but you are eligible to buy monthly transit passes online at a discounted rate for the summer months. Load the passes on to your card at Answers in UMSU University Centre or via the Winnipeg Transit Website. If you had a U-Pass on your Peggo card during the 2017-2018 school year and will be eligible for the U-Pass in the fall of 2018, make sure to keep your Peggo card. If you meet the eligibility requirements, your fall 2018 U-Pass will be uploaded to your Peggo card automatically in September. 

The U-Pass is a Universal Transit Pass which provides unlimited access to Winnipeg Transit services for Full-Time students in exchange for a mandatory fee. The U-Pass fee of $132.50 per Term is automatically assessed on your Aurora fee statement.

The Fall Term U-Pass is valid September 1 – December 31. The Winter Term U-Pass is valid January 1 – April 30. UMSU, the UMGSA and Winnipeg Transit are currently negotiating for the creation of an optional summer U-Pass.

Only Full-Time students – students enrolled in at least nine (9) credit hours in a Term – who are members of the University of Manitoba Students’ Union or the UMGSA are eligible for the U-Pass.

You can use your U-Pass to ride Winnipeg Transit buses for the entirety of the Term in which you are eligible, without additional fares. Note: Your Student ID with the U-Pass sticker is required, along with the U-Pass when boarding a Transit bus to utilize the U-Pass.  If the appropriate Student ID is not presented, students risk confiscation of their U-Pass. Students are not to sell, barter or give away their U-Pass, as the penalty could be confiscation of the U-Pass and possible fines.

Note: Post-Secondary Monthly Transit passes and other Winnipeg Transit fare products will continue to be sold at both Answers Fort Garry & Answers Bannatyne. If you are experiencing issues purchasing a Post-Secondary PEGGO card from Answers, please check with the Registrar’s office to confirm your eligibility, as students must be registered in order to receive the student rate.

For more information, including how to opt-in or opt-out of the U-Pass, please visit the UMSU website or Winnipeg Transit.
