OC Transpo U-Pass: For students living in Quebec
If you are studying at the University of Ottawa, Carleton University, Saint Paul University or Algonquin College during the 2016-2017 school year, you are eligible to get the OC Transpo U Pass.
This pass is accepted on the STO system without restrictions from September 1, 2016, to April 30, 2017. The U-Pass is exclusively for full-time students registered at these academic institutions.
You must update your “Mailing Address” in your student file (place of residence during the school year) at your academic institution.
Students at the University of Ottawa and Saint Paul University only
Your U-Pass is now on a smart card, so you must tap your card on the reader when you board the bus and then show the photo side of your card to the driver. This pilot project started last summer and is continuing. It is intended for students at the University of Ottawa and now also students at Saint Paul University.
How to get the OC Transpo U-Pass
