Welcome to the UW! Whether you take transit from Tukwila, bike from Bothell or drive from Duvall, Transportation Services is here to help with your commute.

Transit & U-PASS

The U-PASS is a bus pass plus more. Loaded right onto the Husky Card, the U-PASS provides members with unlimited rides on regional buses, commuter trains, light rail and water taxis as well as discounts on vanpools, carpools and other special offers.

Beginning July 1, 2022, all personnel who are paid by the University of Washington will be eligible for a fully subsidized U-PASS. Employees who do not qualify for the fully subsidized pass may be eligible to purchase a quarterly or annual U-PASS through their campus transportation office.

Your U-PASS will be ready for use within 12 to 24 hours after you become eligible for the fully-subsidized U-PASS or purchase an opt-in U-PASS. 

Please see the UW Bothell or UW Tacoma for their separate U-PASS programs. Harborview employees should check their intranet or call 206-744-3254.
