Summer Metro pass renewal begins

Eligible employees may now register for a summer 2007 U-Pass, or Universal Metro Pass, allowing free use of Metro, the region’s public transportation system. Full-time students who have registered for the fall semester may request a pass beginning April 30.

The spring U-Pass is valid through May 21.

To register for a no-charge summer pass, valid May 15-Aug. 26, visit the Parking and Transportation Services Web site at

A new feature allows employees to use their Human Resources Management System (HRMS) self-service user ID and password to log in. For help, call the HRMS helpdesk at 935-5707. Students will access the system using their WebSTAC login.

The U-Pass program, funded by the University, provides benefits-eligible faculty and staff, full-time students and full-time employees of basic service contractors a pass that allows free boarding of any Metro bus or MetroLink light-rail system train.

Summer U-Passes may be picked up at these distribution centers on the Danforth and Medical School campuses:

• Danforth Campus: 11 a.m.-3 p.m. May 14-16 in Mallinckrodt Student Center

• Medical School Campus: 11 a.m.-3 p.m. May 8-10 in the Olin Residence Hall gym at 4550 Scott Ave.

Starting May 17, passes not picked up at the distribution centers may be picked up from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday at the Parking and Transportation Services office at 700 Rosedale Ave. on North Campus.
