The U-Pass program allows students to take advantage of unlimited rides on: Metro Buses, Metro Subways, DASH, the Big Blue Bus, Culver City Bus, Foothill Transit, Gardena Transit, Long Beach Transit, Montebello Bus Lines, Norwalk Transit, & Pasadena Transit. The U-Pass does NOT work for MetroLink nor the AVTA, but we do offer other special programs.

Metro has changed the way you utilize their services! Their new Fare Capping allows for more opportunities to ride without hurting your wallet. Visit Metro’s Fare Capping webpage for additional information on how their new change makes it easier for everyone who pays with TAP can earn free rides.

The CSUN Transit Station is an excellent example of the University's commitment to encourage the campus community to use transit as a commute mode to access the campus.
