Graduate U-Pass Program Information

USC Transportation partners with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to offer the Graduate Student U-Pass program; the reduced fare transit pass offers USC grad students unlimited rides on Metro’s rail and bus lines for any given semester.  Please read all the information on this page before purchasing a pass. If you need help or cannot find the answer to your questions on this page, contact USC Transportation Rideshare Coordinator Maira Sanchez at


The Graduate U-Pass is no longer available for purchase for the Spring 2020 semester.  It will be offered again during the Summer 2020 semester (effective dates: May 4-August 16) at an estimated cost of $81.  Fall 2020 dates/costs have not yet been finalized by Metro, but are expected to be approximately $130 for a 23-week semester (TBD).
