Students enrolled for spring semester to enjoy unlimited VIA service

As students, faculty and staff at OLLU and other local colleges and universities return to in-person instruction, they can enjoy a major perk for their spring schedules—free, unlimited access to bus service anywhere in the VIA service area with the VIA U-Pass.

The VIA U-Pass is designed to provide convenient access to public transportation and to help address the challenges of growing student populations with limited and paid parking options on or near campus. The U-Pass does not require a student purchase. It’s provided to all students enrolled in participating colleges and universities through their partnerships with VIA.

The VIA U-Pass also may be used for VIA Link services. Students with smartphones can access the U-Pass through the VIA’s goMobile+app. Students who don’t have smartphones can board the bus by presenting their ID with a VIA sticker provided by their school.

Riders are still required to wear a mask, according to guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and a mandate from the federal government. VIA will continue daily and enhanced cleaning of all vehicles and encourages the community to observe good hygiene practices, including frequent handwashing and use of hand sanitizer.
