Renew employee U-Pass to ride MetroLink, Metro buses for free

The employee 2011-12 U-Pass — allowing Washington University in St. Louis faculty and staff free use of Metro, the region’s public transportation system — will expire June 30.

WUSTL’s 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 Universal Metro Pass that allows free boarding and use of any Metro bus or MetroLink light-rail system train.

Benefits-eligible employees may request a new U-Pass for the 2012-13 fiscal year at the Parking & Transportation Services website, The new pass will be valid through June 30, 2013.

Employees can renew the pass by logging onto the Parking & Transportation system and using their WUSTL KEY and password. Employees who do not know their WUSTL KEY and/or password should contact the Systems and Procedures Helpdesk at (314) 935-5707.

After submitting an online request, employees should be sure that they receive a confirmation. After making a request, the screen should immediately go to a confirmation page, and, if a valid email address was provided, the employee will also receive a confirmation email.

If an employee doesn’t receive one of these two confirmations, Parking & Transportation Services did not receive the request.
