What is the S Pass?

The S Pass is a discounted IndyGo bus pass available only to college students in Indianapolis. With the S Pass, you can ride any of IndyGo's 27 fixed routes including the popular Red Line that services the IUPUI campus and downtown (excluding express or flexible service routes).

What does the S Pass cost?

For current IUPUI students, the S Pass costs $30 for each 31 day pass — this is a savings of 50% of the cost of a standard IndyGo monthly pass. Students can purchase one S Pass each month for 12 months.

When does the S Pass expire?

The S Pass is valid for 31 days from the time it is activated during the first ride. After 31 days, a student needs to buy a new S Pass.

Where do I get the S Pass?

S Passes can be purchased in the Jagtag office on the second floor of the Campus Center. This office is located between the Campus Center Student Health clinic and Mondo Subs.

When can I get an S Pass?

Students can purchase an S Pass beginning August 1, 2011.

Where can I find bus route information?

Bus routes and a trip planner can be found on the IndyGo website at and by clicking the Maps and Schedules tab.

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 2011-12 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. Information on the Advisory Board and their process can be found online.
