University of Minnesota Transit Service

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!

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, for $114 for a whole semester. That works out to about $7 per week!

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
  • Metro Transit app to buy transit tickets on the go
  • Cash or credit card at any rail ticket machine
  • Cash (exact change only) on the bus.
