ASM Spring/Summer 2016 Bus Passes are good for unlimited travel on all regular Metro Transit buses from January 11 through September 9, 2016. Campus bus routes–the Routes 80, 81, 82 and 84–do not require a pass–anyone can board for free, campus including visitors and staff.

*You must be enrolled as a student paying student segregated fees for the appropriate semester at UW-Madison and 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.f.

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 receive 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.

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.

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

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.
