University of Minnesota

Cartoon style city with people with various pass types.

The University of Minnesota is served by more than two dozen bus routes and the METRO Green Line so transit is an easy and stress-free way to get on (and off) campus!

Let’s work together to limit the spread of COVID-19. Learn what you can do at

U-Pass (students)

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. U-Pass is $114 for a whole semester!

Metropass (faculty and staff)

Metropass provides U of M staff and faculty a discount on the typical monthly transit pass. It's also valid on buses and light rail.

Campus Zone Pass

All U of M students and staff are able to ride the METRO Green Line between West Bank, East Bank and Stadium Village stations for free with the Campus Zone Pass. If you have a U-Pass or Metropass, you do not need a Campus Zone Pass.

Other ways to pay

  • Rechargeable value loaded on a Go-To Card for quick and easy fare payment
