U-Pass for free travel
Students are eligible for a U-Pass, which allows them free travel on many bus and train routes in Connecticut, including CT Transit and WRTD. U-Passes are available free of charge to students who have paid the University's transit fee, who are typically full-time students taking at least one in-person class. (You can check your student fee bill to see if you've paid.) U-Passes are available to all other UConn students for a nominal fee. Visit http://upass.uconn.edu for more information and registration.
