If you want to reduce your commuting costs, alleviate commuting stress and make productive use of your commuting time, ride an OCTA bus to campus!
There are several options to purchase transit fare from OCTA. You may buy a bus pass in person, online, over the phone, or by mail. These options are explained on the OCTA website at http://www.octa.net/Bus/Buy-My-Pass/Overview/.
The U-Pass is a reduced-fare semester bus pass, offering students unlimited rides to campus, work, shopping, the beach, or anywhere they choose on any of OCTA's local routes.
Undergraduate students who are enrolled in 9 or more units and graduate students who are enrolled in 6 or more units during the Fall and Spring semester may come to the Parking Office to purchase one subsidized U-Pass for $92 for the semester. The U-Pass is available for purchase one week prior to the start of the semester and is valid through finals week.
The retail price of an OCTA bus pass is $69 per month, or $276 for a 4-month semester. Parking and Transportation Services subsidizes the cost of the U-Pass, allowing eligible students to purchase the pass at the Parking & Transportation Office for only $92.
The pass is valid throughout the semester. OCTA may ask to see your Titan ID Card upon boarding.
