Effective immediately, students and staff will no longer swipe their ID card to board the RTA bus. RTA has switched to a new, contactless fare system in which you use your mobile device to board. To get your free transit pass you will be required to log in to your UCR Transportation Services account and enroll in the U-PASS Program. Once registered, you will receive your free pass on your mobile device via the Token Transit app for unlimited rides anywhere RTA buses go, anytime they operate. For step by step instructions on how to register for your free pass click here. See Learn About Taking the Bus, for more information on the RTA bus program.
