You save with U-Pass! 

The University Pass Program (U-Pass) allows undergraduate Moody students to have unlimited rides aboard the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) buses and trains. The pass replaces cash for all CTA fares; no cash is needed. The U-Pass is an undergraduate Moody student's pass to travel to stores, social events, sports events, art and entertainment centers, churches, and Practical Christian Ministries (PCM) throughout Chicago. Participation in the CTA U-Pass program is mandatory for all undergraduate students taking 12 or more credits per semester and taking at least one on-campus class. Students receive unlimited rides with the U-Pass for $160.00 each fall and spring semester. The U-Pass fee is non-refundable and is included in the student's school bill each semester. The U-Pass Program is not available during summer school sessions. The U-Pass is not accepted on the Metra, Pace, or Amtrak lines.  


U-PASS Rules and Regulations

(as outlined by the CTA)

  • The U-Pass provides students taking 12 or more credits unlimited rides on any CTA bus or train during the fall and spring semesters.
