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 Metro Transit buses and METRO lines* 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.
All University of Minnesota students and staff are able to ride the METRO Green Line on campus with the Campus Zone Pass. The Campus Zone Pass is valid only for the METRO Green Line for the stations on campus (West Bank, East Bank and Stadium Village stations).
*customers who ride Northstar and bus routes with fares above $3 will need to add stored value.
There are many 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 serves the heart of campus on Washington Avenue. See a list of all routes serving campus.
Days of operation
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, 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.
