ASM Bus Pass

In order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection for everyone, there will be no in-person bus pass distribution for UW-Madison students for the spring 2021 semester.

Students, you will use your WisCard as a flash pass to board all Metro bus routes.

Just show your WisCard to the driver. The driver will press a key on the fare box to count your ride.

If you have a Fall pass you may continue to use it through January 22; if you did not receive one, you can still ride Metro by showing the driver your WisCard.

As a reminder, the Route 80, 81, 82 and 84 buses are always free and don’t require passes.

Masks are required on all Metro Transit Buses, and at this time, passenger capacity is limited to 20 people per bus.

Routes and schedules have been modified and passenger capacity reduced, so please plan ahead and take possible delays into account

For more information on routes, schedules, planning, phone apps for real time bus arrival information, and instructions on how to sign up for Metro’s text alert system, please see https://cityofmadison.com/metro
