Fall/Winter Universal Bus Pass (U-Pass)

Students registered in at least 1.5 credits can obtain a Universal Bus Pass (U-Pass) for use on Niagara Regional Transit.

Your U-Pass, gives you access to St. Catharines, Thorold, Niagara Falls, Welland, Fort Erie, Pelham and the Niagara Regional Transit Systems.

U-Pass is effective from Sept. 1 until the end of the academic year. There is no U-Pass from May 1st until August 31st (see spring/summer pass information on this page).

How to collect our U-Pass

U-Pass stickers can be picked up from the start of September, after you have collected your Brock Card, at the BUSU Reception Desk (open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). BUSU is located on the 3rd floor of the Student-Alumni Building.

For more information on how to get to Brock and around the Niagara Region, please check out the resources on the Your Bus website.

If you have questions about your U-Pass, please contact frontdesk@brockbusu.ca.

What if I need to ride the bus in Fall before I can collect my U-Pass sticker?

You can use your Brock card without your sticker to ride the bus from Sept. 1, but you MUST have a sticker on your card by the end of September - so get it as soon as you can!

Can I opt-out of U-Pass?

U-Pass is provided by ancillary fees, which were voted on by student referendum, so students can not opt-out.
