Image - No-charge May pass for U-Pass holders

Beginning Monday, April 25, no-charge May passes (valid only on OC Transpo buses, trains and Para Transpo vehicles) will be distributed to eligible students:

  • Were you a student during the winter academic term (January-April 2022)?
  • During the winter term, did you attend the University of Ottawa, Carleton University, Université Saint-Paul or Algonquin College?
  • Did you receive a U-Pass for the winter term?

If you answered yes to all of these, you are eligible to receive a no-charge QR code pass for the month of May!

How do you get a pass?

On-campus outreach dates for pass distribution have now ended. For assistance, please contact OCUpass@ottawa.ca.

How do you use the pass?

Scan the QR code pass on the barcode reader at fare gates. On an OC Transpo bus, show both the new pass and your U-Pass smartcard photo to the bus operator, who will confirm the validity. The pass holder will need to present a valid pass and U-Pass photo smartcard upon request of a Transit Fare Enforcement Officer or Special Constable. The pass is non-transferable and must be used solely by the registered holder.
