Based on results from a student wide referendum to implement a universal bus pass, the Niagara College Student Administrative Council implemented the Universal Bus Pass (U-pass) on September 1st, 2007.

The U-Pass is a proven solution to students’ transportation concerns and SAC has made it happen. The U-Pass provides direct links from St. Catharines, Niagara Falls and Welland to ALL Niagara College Campuses (Welland, NOTL and Niagara Falls).

The U-Pass gives students unlimited ridership on ALL Welland, Niagara Falls and St. Catharines transit systems regular routes for one fare while attending Niagara College. The fees associated with the U-Pass will mean dramatic savings for students.

If you are a full time student then a U-Pass fee of $169 would have been automatically charged to your student account as part of your student fees at the beginning of the school year. Part time students beginning in September will need to purchase the U-Pass for $169 which will allow them to ride any transit system from September to April.

At just $169 per year, students could notice as much as $750 in savings per term.

Please note: Transit services are greatly reduced during May to August each year. There are NO direct runs to the campuses during Winter and Spring breaks.
