University of Minnesota Transit Service

It's fast, it's easy and it's inexpensive

U of M students have access to one of the best deals in town: the U-Pass. With a U-Pass, you get unlimited rides on buses and light rail* at any time, on any route, for $100 for the whole semester. That works out to about $6 per week!

Faculty and staff are eligible for a similar discount with a Metropass. It's also valid on buses and light rail.* Find more information at the University of Minnesota website.

*customers who ride Northstar and bus routes with fares above $3 will need to add stored value.

There are more than 35 bus routes traveling to the Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses with METRO Blue Line service just blocks from the West Bank campus. The METRO Green Line travels through the heart of the East Bank campus on Washington Avenue. See a list of all routes serving campus.

Most limited-stop and express bus service to the University operates on weekdays only. Consult your route's schedule for the exact days of operation. There is no service on official University holidays when offices are closed and classes are excused.

Get a Go-To Card

If you aren't eligible for a U-Pass or Metropass, you can still save money with a Go-To Card. Use your card again and again – when the value gets low, simply add stored value or a 7-Day or 31-Day Pass. Get your Go-To Card online or pick one up at the Coffman Information Desk.

Huron Station

Huron Station, located on I-94 at Huron Boulevard, is the gateway to the U for east-metro commuters. All westbound express buses on I-94 stop on demand at Huron Station between roughly 7:30 and 10 a.m. (check your schedule for specific trips). To get off at Huron Station, signal the driver well before the stop. At the station, transfer to Route 129 for service to the heart of campus.
