The Students' Union is the U of R's on-campus Transit Agent – students can buy Rides and Monthly Passes from our Member Services Desk on the 2nd Floor of the Riddell Centre (RC 221). We also provide you with free schedules and route maps. Finally, our friendly staff is also able to help if you are unfamiliar with the Regina Transit service.
What kind of passes can I buy?
Students can buy Monthly Passes, Day Passes, and 10 or 20 Rides.
Monthly Passes last for 31 days and allow you to ride the bus as often as you need within that 31 day period. For example, if you purchase a Monthly Pass on September 3rd, then you can ride the bus as much as you'd like between September 3rd and October 4th (note that September only has 30 days). Monthly Passes MUST be purchased on the new rechargeable R-Card. R-Cards require an initial deposit of $5 which is paid only when you first get a R-Card or when you need to replace a lost, stolen, or damaged R-Card.
Individual Rides can be purchased in sets of 10 or 20. Each ride saves you $0.35 at the adult rates and they never expire. Rides can be purchased either on a rechargeable R-Card or as single-use cards. Single-use cards cannot be recharged or registered. The benefit of using the rechargeable R-Card is that you can register it with Regina Transit to protect the balance of the card from loss or theft, and it can be loaded with both individual rides and a monthly pass at the same time.
Please note that URSU does not sell Senior passes or Discount passes. You will need to visit Regina Transit’s Downtown Information Centre at 2124 11th Ave. For a list of authorized Transit Agents in the city please click here.
What is an R-Card?
The R-Card is a reloadable smart card that replaces tickets and monthly passes. It can be loaded with pre-paid rides or a monthly pass.
How much do they cost?
|Cash Fare||10 Rides||Monthly Passes||Day/Weekend|
|Senior****||$3.25||$29||$300/year or $150/half year||$10|
What if I need to transfer?
More information on R-Cards
On November 1st, 2010, Regina Transit introduced the new R-Card fare system. This card replaces the old paper tickets and passes with a plastic RFID-enabled card. Each card includes an initial $5 charge. R-Cards can be registered with Regina Transit with the cardholder's contact information to help protect the balance of the card in case you ever lose your card or have it stolen. If this occurs, it's as simple as going to Regina Transit's Downtown Information Centre and replacing the card. This cancels the old card and you keep your card's balance. For those who wish to buy rides, but don't want to purchase a plastic R-Card, we also sell disposable paper cards that can be thrown away after they reach a 0 balance.
