Metro Pass FAQs

If I am not enrolled in courses this semester, can I still obtain a Metro Pass?
No, students must be currently enrolled in the current semester to receive a Metro Pass.

Is the pass valid on both Metrobus and Metrolink?
Yes, you are able to use your pass for both services. You must sign the back of the pass and have your UMSL ID in order for the pass to be considered valid. Additionally, the dates of validity on the pass should be legible.  

What about Call-A-Ride Service?
Students who need to utilize Call-A-Ride Services must be registered with Disability Access Services (DAS) and be certified through Metro’s Call-A-Ride Office. Please contact DAS at (314) 516-6554 to learn how to become certified for Call-A-Ride service.

Can I loan my pass to another person?
Loaning passes to others is an inappropriate use of the pass. Students caught loaning their passes to others risk losing their pass and the ability to obtain a pass in the future.

Have a Pass Mailed

Students may elect to have one parking permit and/or Metro Pass mailed to the local address listed on their student account. Students who prefer this option must complete a Shipping Request Form. If additional permits are desired, they must be picked up in person at the Student Financial Services Office, 327 Millennium Student Center. The cost of this service is $5 and will be added to the student's account.
