You must be enrolled as a student for fall classes at UW-Madison as a regular or special student and show a valid, current WisCard before you will be issued a fall pass. Please note that guest students and students in programs for which student segregated fees are not charged are not eligible for an ASM Bus Pass. See our FAQ page for more information on eligibility and alternatives for those not eligible to participate in the ASM Bus Pass program.

Metro Transit runs fixed route and paratransit service covering most of the Madison metropolitan area seven days a week.  Metro runs frequent service to campus as well as most major employment, shopping, health and recreation centers. In addition Metro provides service within the UW-Madison campus (routes 80, 81, 82 and 84). These routes are open to all, and require no fare or pass to board.

You may not give or share your pass with others. Madison Metro drivers will periodically ask to see your WisCard; if you do not have a WisCard when attempting to board the bus, or if your ID has been altered or appears fradulent, your pass will be confiscated and may not be returned. Students abusing the bus pass privilege may be charged with non-academic misconduct.

If your pass is lost or stolen, you can purchase replacement for $20. Replacements must be purchased at StudentPrint. Please see our FAQ page for more information on replacement policies. You are only entitled to one replacement pass per semester.

Madison Metro serves Madison and some nearby cities seven days a week from the early morning until late evening. Maps and schedules for every bus route are available online, and there is an interactive page where you can fill in your location and destination and find the best route and schedule for you. There are also links to a variety of free apps for Android, IPhones and WIndows. If you prefer to talk to someone directly call Metro Customer Service at 266-4466 (TTY: 267-1143)

Paratransit Service
Your ASM Bus Pass is also good for paratransit services, which are transportation services adapted to the special needs of people with temporary or long-term disabilities. Click here for more information and the application form.

UW and UW Hospital, and Emeriti Employees have their own pass program. This program includes many visiting scholars, researchers and fellows. If you are not eligible for an ASM Pass, you might qualify for an employee pass. However, if you are a student hourly or graduate assistant, you do not qualify for an employee pass, and you must be enrolled for the term during which you are employed to qualify for a student pass.
