Your CTA U-PASS provides UNLIMITED rides on CTA bus/rail systems during an academic term (not valid during winter intercession).
Students must meet enrollment requirements in order to participate in the U-Pass program. All students meeting these requirements are automatically enrolled in the program. The U-Pass is not optional for any eligible student. Eligibility is based on your enrollment as it appears in Campus Connection. If your enrollment changes before the last day to drop courses, your U-PASS will be adjusted accordingly.

Useful Information for Using your New Ventra U-PASS:
- Take your card out of your wallet before tapping to avoid charges to other contactless cards you may have.
- Pay close attention to the tap display when using your U-Pass. This will help you to determine if your tap was a U-Pass transaction or if you have been charged regular fare for your ride.
- Register your Ventra card online so that you can monitor you account and usage. Registration does not require that you link your card to a credit or debit card and does not automatically activate your U-Pass (which must be completed over the phone). Registering your U-Pass is not required but can be a very helpful tool.
- If changes have been made to your enrollment, please allow 3 to 5 business days for those changes to affect your U-Pass.
