StudentPrint will not be open over winter break and the Student Activity Center will be closed, so make sure you pick up your pass before classes end for the semester.

To qualify for an ASM Bus Pass you must be a student registered for credits at UW-Madison and have your WisCard in hand. No exceptions.

The last day Metro Transit accepted a WisCard in lieu of an ASM Bus Pass was September 10. After that date, students need an ASM Bus Pass to board all Metro bus routes except the campus bus routes 80, 81, 82 and 84, which never require payment.

Studentprint is also the location to purchase a replacement bus pass, should yours be lost or stolen. The cost is $20, and there is a limit of one replacement per semester. You must have your Wiscard in hand to purchase a replacement bus pass.

If you need a new WisCard, please check with the WisCard office for their hours and information about their policies:
