Schools may contact ETS Customer Services for further information. Students enrolled at approved institution registered with ETS must be able to produce valid student ID (with photo) issued by their school, along with proof of current full-time enrolment.
Students at registered institutions that have an ETS pass outlet at their institution must purchase their pass at their campus location.

U-Pass is a transit program that gives eligible students at participating post-secondary institutions unlimited access to regular Edmonton, St. Albert Transit (StAT), Strathcona County Transit, Spruce Grove Transit, Fort Sask Transit and Leduc Transit services. Eligible students are assessed a U-Pass fee by their institution for each term that they are enrolled and which U-Pass is applicable.
U-Pass does not include charter, special event or contracted services provided by ETS or our regional providers to outlying communities, or specialized handibus transit services offered by regional providers. ETS DATS will accept U-Pass.
