U-Pass Program Renewed for Students
Webster has renewed the popular U-Pass program for all students in the St. Louis region.

ST. LOUIS – In an effort to offer convenience and cost-savings to students, Webster University has extended the partnership between Webster University and St. Louis Metro Transit that will allow students to make use of the MetroBus and MetroLink systems in the 2018-2019 academic year. 

Students can get their free pass for the bus and metro system at the Bursar’s Office in Webster Hall. The passes can be used at any Metro transit location, as a part of the program.

To obtain and use your 2018-2019 U-Pass:

  • Visit the Business Office with your Webster ID, ensuring the proper sticker for the current semester adheres to the back.
  • The first pass is free; however, there will be a $50 fee if a student loses their pass and needs to replace it during the academic year.  The University will only replace the pass one (1) time.
  • Simply carry both your U-Pass and Webster ID as verification while riding the Metro bus and light rail system.
  • For bus and train schedules, route planning and other information navigating the Metro system, visit metrostlouis.org or the Campus Life section of the University website

This partnership between the University and Metro, in addition to the Enterprise CarShare program, were developed in response to student leaders’ proposals through Delegates Agenda.

The Car Share program is open to qualified students, faculty, and staff ages 18 and up (Ages 18-20 must submit an online Parent Acknowledgement Form). Once a person signs up they have 24/7 access to the vehicle, which is parked at the WVA Clubhouse in a designated spot. 

Earlier this year, Webster University also launched a Bike Share program. It also is free for students for short distance rides in the area. A bicycle fixit station that gives students a space to repair their bicycles also was established on campus on the patio outside the University Center earlier this year.
