The Ventra U-Pass provides unlimited rides for eligible DePaul students on CTA buses and trains during the Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer Quarters. The U-Pass is not available during the Winter Intersession.
Students must meet the following three criteria:
All students meeting these criteria will automatically be enrolled for the U-Pass. Your U-Pass will be adjusted accordingly if your enrollment changes prior to the last day to drop courses. Students must have a DePaul-issued ID card before they can receive a U-Pass. You can find information on how to receive your DePaul ID Card by going here.
Eligible students who do not need the U-Pass for the fall term can opt out of the U-Pass by completing the U-Pass OPT OUT. Eligible students must complete the form by January 29th, 2024. Students who do not complete the opt-out form before the deadline will be charged the U-Pass fee regardless of use. Credits for the U-Pass fee will be issued by February 7th, 2024.
If you have lost or had your U-Pass stolen you must purchase a replacement U-Pass. Students will need to add $50.00 to their Demon Express account. Please be sure to contact email@example.com or the Blue Demon Card offices if you place money into Demon Express for a replacement U-Pass.
*It can take 3-10 business days for changes in eligibility to be reflected in the Ventra U-Pass system since it is not possible to directly link to the DePaul course enrollment system.
