DTA U-Pass

Purchase your DTA U-Pass here.

With limited capacity for parking spaces on campus, riding the DTA is a smart choice. No parking hassles, just easy, city-wide DTA bus service to and from the UMD campus or anywhere in the Twin Ports with your UMD U-Card. Thanks to a cooperative effort between UMD and the Duluth Transit Authority (DTA), UMD students, faculty, and staff can use their U-Card to ride DTA buses at extremely discounted rates.

Students are automatically assessed a $10 fee each semester which provides unlimited rides. UMD students registered for six or more undergraduate credits, as well as most graduate students, qualify for the U-Pass program. Those students who are not assessed the $10 semester fee may opt-in by paying online. The student fall semester pass is valid July 1 - December 31; the student spring semester pass is valid January 1 - June 30.

Faculty and staff may also opt-in and take advantage of the U-Pass program by purchasing a $50 annual pass. The employee annual pass is valid July 1 - June 30 for the year in which it is purchased. You may purchase your DTA U-Pass here.

Present your activated U-Card ID as the bus pass when boarding any DTA bus in the Duluth-Superior area. The U-Card ID is non-transferable and may not be used by anyone other than the cardholder. When used illegally as a fare payment, U-Card IDs will be confiscated by the driver and violators may be prosecuted under MINNESOTA 609.855 "CRIMES AGAINST TRANSIT ACT."

Visit the DTA web site for specific information regarding routes and schedules.

Please call the UMD Parking Services Office at 218-726-7433 for more information regarding the DTA U-Pass program.
