The Transit U-Pass

The Transit U-Pass

Every full-time Laurier undergraduate student pays a mandatory U-Pass fee that provides universal access to the public transit service in either Brantford or Waterloo. The U-Pass is campus-specific and allows unlimited rides on Brantford Transit for Brantford students or Grand River Transit (GRT)* for Waterloo students. In both Brantford and Waterloo your OneCard is your U-Pass, and it is active during the academic terms that you are paying tuition.

*The GRT U-Pass includes unlimited use of the ION Light Rail which travels between Conestoga Station in Waterloo and Fairways Station in Kitchener with a total of 19 stations along the route.
