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/summer, students may opt-in.

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

The 2023-24 UPass fee is $159.82 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're not enrolled in the Fall Semester and begin in the Winter, you'll be assessed $79.91.
