About the U-Pass

The U-Pass is a transportation service facilitated by the Students’ Union that allows you universal access to the transit system on your home campus. Negotiated between the Students’ Union, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the respective transit authorities in Brantford and Waterloo, the U-Pass provides you unlimited ridership during the semesters you pay the fee. The U-Pass is on your OneCard.

Undergraduate Students: The temporary Grand River Transit U-Pass exemption for the 2021-2022 year applied to terms where the University’s COVID-19 protocols imposed remote learning.  As a result of having returned fully to traditional academic delivery, that exemption no longer applies.  If you are registered as a full-time undergraduate student you are required to pay the U-Pass fee.  The Grand River Transit U-Pass fee is being put to referenda in January 2023, providing all undergraduate students in Waterloo the opportunity to have their say on the continuation of the service.  If you would like to discuss further, please email
