The Universal Transit Pass (U-Pass) is accepted by Spruce Grove Transit and is fully transferable to all other transit systems in the Capital Region. Students purchase their U-Pass through participating post-secondary educational institutions:

  • University of Alberta
  • MacEwan University
  • Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT)
  • NorQuest College

U-Pass stickers are issued by the educational institution for each term and are placed on student photo identification cards. The sticker must be displayed when boarding a bus, and must be with the student at all times on the LRT.

Eligibility

Eligibility for U-Pass is governed by the educational institution.

If you do not qualify for a U-Pass, Spruce Grove also has a youth/student pass.

U-Pass and other municipalities

In addition to connecting into the Edmonton Transit System, students can use their U-Pass to travel to any of the Capital Region communities of Leduc, Strathcona County, Ft. Saskatchewan and St. Albert.
