A brief description of the program:

The CTA U-PASS is provided to eligible students during enrolled terms. The U-PASS provides unlimited use of CTA trains and buses. A U-PASS is issued at the start of each semester, and expires at the end of each semester.
The U-PASS program is not optional. All eligible students are assessed the $109 CTA Transportation Fee for each of the Fall and Spring semesters. UIC also participates in the Summer U-PASS program. This fee for the summer is less than the academic year due to the condensed schedule.

In addition, UIC also operates a free campus shuttle which provides free transportation for students, faculty, and staff to various points on campus. This service runs throughout most of the day every day of the week with varying frequencies and routes throughout the day.
