Can a bus driver confiscate my student card or ask for identification?
Yes. Here is why: The uPass is not transferrable. Only YOU can use it. If your student card image is blurry, damaged or otherwise unidentifiable, or if they have reason to believe it is not you – they may ask for another form of identification.
If they find that someone other than yourself is using your U-Pass, they will confiscate it and that person will have to pay cash fare. In the event that your U-Pass is confiscated, the city will return it to LUSU and provide an explanation.
This may be frustrating for you, but this actually helps to protect our U-Pass program. As per our terms and conditions with Transit fraudulent misuse will result in individual expulsion from the uPass program. Fraudulent misuse is defined but not limited to; using a fake or counterfeit uPass sticker, selling your uPass, lending out your uPass.
What are the benefits?
Not only do you save a significant amount of money, but it's also a safe way to ride home from events, parties, and clubs. Plus, a reduced demand for parking helps to maintain the green space on campus. You'll also never be left stranded, especially in the winter—it's a great backup plan for when your car doesn't start! Everyone's participation in the program helps reduce the costs for all students and reduces barriers to education.
