Rules on Eligibility and Use
ASM Bus Passes are good for unlimited travel on all regular Metro Transit buses. Campus bus routes--the Routes 80, 81, 82 and 84--do not require a pass.
You must be enrolled as a student paying student segregated fees for the appropriate semester at UW-Madison aand show a valid, current WisCard before you will be issued an ASM Bus pass. You must sign the back of your pass, and you must carry your WisCard with you when you ride Metro Transit. Drivers may ask at any time to inspect your pass and your ID, and confiscate passes, signed or unsigned, which appear to have been tampered with, or which are unsigned, or from riders unable to provide a matching WisCard at the time of the request.
Appropriately registered students are entitled to one pass per period. This pass is for your use, and your use only. Students abusing the bus pass privilege may be charged with non-academic misconduct.
If your pass is defective, you may exchange it for a new one at StudentPrint. You must turn in the defective pass to StudentPrint to recieve a new one.
If you lose or destroy your pass, you may purchase one replacement per semester. There is a $20 fee for a replacement pass. Keep your receipt. If you find your first pass within a month, and turn in the receipt and original pass to StudentPrint, you may be issued a refund. Please note that refunds are issued by mail, not at StudentPrint, and processing refunds may take six to eight weeks. If you have further questions, please see our FAQ page for more information.
