Why pick up an ASM Bus Pass? ASM Bus Passes are good for unlimited use of Metro Transit bus routes. Metro Transit runs fixed route and paratransit service covering most of the Madison metropolitan area seven days a week. Metro runs frequent service to and around campus, and also serves most major employment, shopping, health and recreation centers in the Madison region.
Maps and schedules for every Metro Transit 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 on Metro’s website. If you prefer to talk to someone directly call Metro Customer Service at (608) 266-4466 (TTY: (608) 267-1143) Printed maps and schedules are available on the buses and at StudentPrint.
*StudentPrint does not handle and is not responsible for faculty/staff or affiliate bus passes. For more information on the faculty/staff/affiliate pass program, please visit the UW Transportation Services website.
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.
This pass is for your use, and your use only. To be eligible for an ASM Bus Pass you must be enrolled as a student paying student segregated fees for the appropriate semester at UW-Madison and show a valid, current UW ID (WisCard) before you will be issued an ASM Bus pass. You must sign your pass legibly upon receipt. Unsigned passes will not be exchanged or refunded. Passes are subject to confiscation by appropriate authorities including StudentPrint staff and Metro Transit drivers.
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 altered, and from riders unable to provide a matching WisCard.
Passes may not be bought, sold, “loaned” or exchanged outside of official distribution channels.
Appropriately registered students are permitted one pass per period. Spring semester and summer intersession count together count as one period. Fall passes will be made available starting Monday, August 27 at two olocations: the 4th floor of the Student Activity Center, 333 East Campus Mall, and at the Union South Box Office, on the main floor. Please note that Fall 2018 passes will not be available to students before this date, even for those enrolled in programs which have set earlier start dates, such as the Medical School and some graduate and professional school pre-enrollment training courses.
Replacing Defective, Lost or Stolen Passes:
If your pass is defective, you may exchange it for a new one. Defective passes will not count against your quota for replacement passes, however, you must turn over the defective pass to StudentPrint to exchange it. Do not turn over defective passes to Metro, and do not throw them away!
If your pass is lost or stolen or otherwise goes missing, you may purchase one replacement per pass period. There is a $20 fee for a replacement pass.
Please note that only defective passes will be replaced during the first week of distribution. No replacements will be sold at StudentPrint during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
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 two weeks or more. If you have further questions, please see our FAQ page for more information.
Accessible Shuttle Service
An Acessible Circulator Shuttle provides supplemental service to the campus bus for those with mobility issues. The shuttle only serves campus buildings, and operates Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. during fall and spring UW class sessions and exam periods. No service on UW holidays, weekends, winter break, spring break or in summer. The shuttle offers both door to door and fixed route service, and is contracted to Badger Bus. For more information on how to use this service, see http://transportation.wisc.edu/parking/permit_disabled.aspx This service is sponsored jointly by ASM and UW Transportation Services.
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.
