To use the UW employee bus pass, you must have both the bus pass and your UW ID or UW Hospital ID with you when you board the bus. The UW/UW Hospital bus pass must be swiped when boarding the bus. Information about swiping your card is available at Metro's website. The bus pass is for your use only. Only the person assigned the bus pass may use it. Your pass is subject to confiscation if misused. If your pass is lost or stolen, you may purchase a replacement for $20.
Employee bus passes provided by Transportation Services
are available to employees paid by the UW-Madison or UW-Extension on the
Madison campus with the exception of student employees, who are not
eligible for an employee pass. In addition, UW-Madison emeriti are
eligible. You must have an active appointment listed in the UW HR
system. Emeriti must have their designation finalized.
Notable groups who are NOT eligible are student employees, Extension emeriti, UW Medical Foundation, some professional students, and retired persons who do not have emeritus status.
UW Health and other affiliate organizations establish their own eligibility.
To pick up your pass and to use your pass, you will need
to have a valid UW ID Card. If you do not have a UW ID you can get one
at the Wiscard Office.
Students, faculty, and staff who need a new or replacement ID card must go to the Wiscard office at Union South and present some form of personal photo identification such as a driver's license, passport, or state ID. In addition, the Wiscard Office can make a Faculty/Staff ID card ONLY after the employee's department has entered the appointment information and the proper authorization has been established in the database. Generally it takes one evening for this information to get updated in the Wiscard Search program. For more information on obtaining a Wiscard, please call 262-3258.
