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. 

The Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) has just released its new official GoMobile app.  RTA is currently phasing out the Token Transit app. Token Transit will not be accepted after January 15, 2023.   GoMobile is an all-in-one mobile app where you can access your UPASS, plan your trip, view bus arrival times, and get service alerts. 

If you already have a current UPASS offered through UCR, follow these steps to access your new pass


If you have not already signed up for a free bus pass, you can register online at TAPS through the Parking Portal.

See Learn About Taking the Bus, for more information on the RTA bus program.
