URSU takes public transit very seriously. Not only is it far more affordable than driving a car, it’s also better for our environment and safer than driving on snow days. We were disappointed that we couldn’t operate the U-Pass this year but have done our best to keep transit as affordable as we can for our members. During the Fall semester alone, URSU spent more than $100,000 in subsidies on bus passes for University of Regina students.
We are now very excited to announce that we have a new temporary option available for the Winter 2021 semester. URSU members will be able to load a bus pass that will be valid from December 16th until April 30th, 2021 for just $100. The interim transit pass will only be available for purchase at the URSU Member Services Desk. Simply bring your University of Regina ID to our Member Services desk any day after December 16th, make your payment, and we’ll get it loaded for you. The pass will become valid and usable as soon as it is purchased and activated. This is not a monthly pass so you only need to do this once during the Winter 2021 semester.
URSU appreciates the dialogue with Regina Transit and applauds their efforts to provide students an affordable way to benefit from our city’s infrastructure. We continue to be thankful for their willingness to listen to our concerns and accommodate the needs of our members.
