Monthly Bus Passes/U-Pass
Adult and Youth Bus Passes
The Ticket, Information & ID Office has a handy system-wide map that contains both a visual display of the bus routes, as well as the time schedule for each route. Also available are individual Bus Route Schedules and Express Routes.
Monthly bus passes for adults ($70.00) and Youth ($35.00) ages 6-17 with valid ID card establishing age of person; includes high school students up to age 19 with valid high school ID card establishing age of student. Bus passes go on sale on the 20th of every month for the following month's pass (e.g., we sell August Bus Passes on July 20th), and are valid for unlimited bus rides for the calendar month for which it is purchased (e.g., August Bus Pass are valid for all of August, regardless of what day it was purchased).
The UPASS is a semester bus pass for students only for use on the city bus. There are two types of UPASSes, the MANDATORY UPASS and the OPT-IN UPASS.
Eligible students for the MANDATORY UPASS will be charged a mandatory $50/semester as part of their student fees (Transportation Fee). Students will be issued the UPASS which is a sticker on the UHID at the Ticket, Information and ID Office when they validate their UH Manoa ID card. The MANDATORY UPASS is not available in the summer.
All other students (Medical, Law and Outreach College students) can purchase the OPT-IN UPASS for $225/semester. The OPT-IN UPASS is only issued the first two months of the semester. Cash, credit (Visa and Mastercard) and debit cards are accepted.
The UPASS is non-transferable, non-refundable, and non-replaceable. Students cannot resell their UPASS and are in violation of the student conduct code.
Please show your UPASS to the bus driver!
