The U-PASS (M•CARD) is a Milwaukee County bus pass available to MATC students enrolled in 6 or more college level credits. The U-PASS (M•CARD) allows MATC students to use the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) seven days a week. Eligible students get unlimited rides on the MCTS buses - just touch your U-PASS (M•CARD) flat to the orange target on the farebox and show your Stormer Pass to the driver when you get on board. The U-PASS is already paid for in your student fees, but you will be charged a replacement fee if it is lost or stolen. Students will only be able to have one active U-PASS (M•CARD)  at any one time while they are a student at MATC.
