The U-Pass will once again make travel easier for local post-secondary students commuting to Edmonton for the new school year.
Fort Saskatchewan joined in on the universal transit pass program in January 2017. U-Pass holders can travel on all participating transit systems.
“So not just Fort Saskatchewan but Edmonton Transit, St. Albert, Strathcona, Leduc and Spruce Grove," said Fort Transit supervisor Anthony Dionigi.
Four Edmonton schools -- MacEwan, NAIT, Norquest and the University of Alberta – will be issuing U-Passes to eligible students. The cost of the passes is included in tuition fees.

The city reminds transit users that parking is available at the new park and ride next to the Dow Centennial Centre for anyone taking the 580 commuter bus to Clareview Transit Station in Edmonton.
