Did you know that you can purchase CapMetro bus passes for 35% off through St. Edward’s?

Riding the bus is a wonderful way to reduce your carbon footprint by cutting down the amount of gasoline you’d use by driving your own car. It’s also a great way to avoid a headache that comes with trying to find parking and can save you money on fuel and car maintenance costs. Start saving money and the environment today!

Why should I buy the pass-through St. Edward’s University? Through a partnership with CapMetro, bus passes are sold to St. Edward’s University Student Activities at a reduced price (35% off standard pass pricing). Any current student, staff, or faculty can take advantage of this discount.

How much are the bus passes? The bus passes are $27 for the Local 31-Day Pass. Valid on MetroBus, UT Shuttles, MetroRapid, and Fyler Routes. There is also a Commuter pass offered for $62.50 that includes the train and Round Rock.

What payment methods are accepted? You can purchase bus passes using cash, check, or Topper Tender. We cannot accept credit cards at this time.

Where do I purchase the bus passes? You can purchase bus passes at the Student ID Desk on the ground floor of the Main Building. You will need to present your student, staff, or faculty ID. Student ID desk is open whenever the university is open from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

How long does the pass last? The pass is activated the first time you use it on a CapMetro bus. From that moment, you have 31 days to use the pass as much as you want/need. Once that time period is up, your pass will no longer be valid.

Do the passes expire if I don’t use them? The passes do not expire if you do not use them. However, once you use the pass the first time, you only have 31 days until the pass is no longer valid, regardless of how often you use the pass during that time.

Where can I get information about bus routes? Using a browser, you can visit the website to plan your trip. You can also see bus schedules and maps. You can also download the CapMetro app on your smartphone or mobile device.

Can I link my St. Edward’s bus pass to the app on my mobile device? Currently, that is not possible, though CapMetro is working on electronic delivery to mobile devices for passes purchased through the MetroWorks program. We will keep you informed of any changes to the functionality of the passes.
