The Universal Transit Pass, commonly referred to as a U-Pass, is provided, for a fee, to students attending the University of Alberta, MacEwan University, NAIT and NorQuest College. The U-Pass is accepted by Spruce Grove Transit and is fully transferable to all other transit systems in the Capital Region, including Edmonton, Beaumont, Leduc, Strathcona County, Fort Saskatchewan and St. Albert.
The U-Pass program is a partnership of local municipalities, post-secondary institutions and their student governments.
Starting September 2021, U-Pass will be available through the Arc card, which students will use to tap on/off buses and the LRT around the Edmonton region. Arc U-Pass cards are issued by participating post-secondary institutions. NAIT students can use their One Card to tap on/off buses and the LRT.
