METRO Adds Texas School Of Business To U.PASS Roll

August 30, 2005

METRO police made the list of 15 transit agencies across the country that will get a boost from federal stimulus funds.

The Texas School of Business is the latest campus to join METRO's U.PASS program, which provides students at member universities, colleges and technical schools unlimited METRO transportation.

Institutions in the program commit to purchase the unlimited-use passes for each student enrolled at a cost of $1 per week ($52 per year).

More than 21,000 U.PASSes have been distributed to Houston-area campuses since the program began in December 2003. Current member institutions include Baylor College of Medicine, Houston Community College System, Houston Graduate School of Theology, MTI-Southwest and East campuses, National Institute of Technology-Bissonnet and Westheimer campuses, Rice University, Texas Barber College, Texas Southern University, UH-Downtown's Colleges of Public Service and Science & Technology, University of St. Thomas and University of Texas-Houston Health Science Center.
