Bus Pass

The Universal Bus Pass (UPass) fee is assessed to all UWindsor students regardless of status full-time, part-time undergraduate or graduate. The bus pass opt-out periods are available during the month of September or January. Since the UPass fee isn't charged in spring/summers, students may opt-in.

The UWSA, OPUS and GSS negotiated a universal student bus pass (U-pass) for UWSA, OPUS and GSS students, In order to use U-pass, students will need to tap their U-pass cards on the readers upon boarding the buses. 

The U-Pass costs $150.78 for the Fall and Winter semesters of each year. The fee is assessed to students during the Fall semester in their student fees. If you were not enrolled in the Fall Semester and begin classes in the Winter Semester,  you will only be assessed for the Winter Semester at $75.39.For more information about fees and service charges, please visit https://www.uwindsor.ca/finance/788/fees-and-charges
