current IUPUI students with an S pass
that allows students to ride any of IndyGo’s 27
fixed routes including the Red Line.

for $30 at the Jagtag Office located on the
second floor of the Campus Center. The
S Pass is valid for 31 days beginning with the
first day it is activated.

The partnership between IUPUI and IndyGo was
established to provide students with an
affordable mode of transportation to school, home
and work.  A standard monthly IndyGo pass costs $60. 
IUPUI students can buy the S Pass at a huge discount!

8. Why is there now a charge for the S Pass?
For the past four years, IUPUI has partnered with IndyGo to provide free bus passes to all IUPUI students, an initiative that was supported by funds from the mandatory general fee. Allocations of the general fee are recommended by the General Fee Advisory Board and approved by campus administration. Upon review of all of the proposals submitted for the 2012-13 school year, the Board recommended changes to the allocations to better meet the needs of the broadest range of IUPUI students. This change is also consistent with the services available to students at other Indianapolis area universities, where students have always paid for a discounted bus pass.
