Message Regarding Inappropriate Use of U-PASS M-Cards

MCTS has become aware of occurrences by U-PASS card holders not using the pass appropriately. 

The U-PASS M-Card is to be used by the card holder only.  When the card holder boards the bus, the card must touch the farebox, then their student ID must be shown to the operator (driver) for validation.  If the picture on the ID card is not the same as the person presenting the card to the operator, or the U-PASS holder fails to show their student ID to the driver, the occurrence is recorded by the farebox.  After several times of misuse, the card maybe or will be blocked.

If the farebox displays “Invalid Pass” upon boarding, the card was likely tagged as being misused and has been blocked. The U-PASS holder will have to get a new pass and pay a replacement fee. It may take a few days to receive the new U-PASS M-Card.   

Please be mindful that MCTS is taking measures to prevent misuse of all cards.  The U-PASS program is a great student benefit that is for the student only, it may not be sold to others.

Spring 2015 UPASS Term Ending  


A reminder to all students that the U-PASS program ends for the
semester on May 22nd. This date will be the last day you will receive
unlimited bus service from MCTS unless you enroll in summer classes.

You can still choose to use your U-PASS as a regular M●CARD all summer long to travel to work, restaurants -- even Summerfest. Just load it with 1-, 7- or a 31-day pass or Stored Value of any amount between $2 and $50 up to $100. The M●CARD offers a discounted rate compared to  paying cash ($1.75 vs $2.25). With the M●CARD you’ll never need to  worry about having the exact change -- everything you need is on one powerful card!

You should hold onto your M●CARD to use in the fall semester when the U-PASS program starts up again.  Important Note - if you lose your pass you will need to buy a new one in the fall for $15. 

If you are graduating or not planning to return to school, you should keep your M●CARD and load it with passes or stored value to continue to enjoy the ease and comfort of the transit system.  If you have any questions please call or email the Parking and Transit office.

UWM Focuses on Transportation and Parking Issues

With changes to the main campus, emergent satellite campuses, more housing options, and a dynamic student body, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee continues to face transportation challenges for the 30,000+ people a day it serves. Parking, bus service, and even bicycle parking are among the more challenging issues faced daily by students, staff, and faculty. 

In Fall 2013, UWM hired an interdisciplinary transportation consultant team to kick-off a comprehensive parking and transportation study. This effort is looking closely at all of the transportation needs of UWM, from all perspectives, and will include reviews of:

  • Parking location, pricing and eligibility
  • Shuttle services - who they serve and how well
  • Bicycling - how do we build off recent campus successes
  • MCTS - how can it work better for UWM
  • Alternative Transportation - how do we take advantage of all options
The study helping to understand how transportation systems work today, gain input from students, faculty, and staff on ideas for improvements, and then make recommendations for how UWM can improve transit, facilities for cyclists and walkers, and best manage parking.

Please monitor www.uwmmoves.wordpress.com for updates on event schedules, leaving your feedback, and reading that of others.
