UW invites you to try transit! Are you transit curious? Want to take the bus but not sure where to start? Love to bike and want to extend your trip by boarding a bus? Maybe you just want to explore a new neighborhood without the hassle of parking.

Now is your chance to give public transit a try! This October, challenge yourself to take the bus or train to a place you would normally drive. Tap your U-PASS for unlimited rides on eight transit services: King County Metro, Sound Transit, Community Transit, Pierce Transit, Everett Transit, Kitsap Transit, King County Water Taxis and Seattle Streetcar .

Don't have a U-PASS? Get one at a great price!

Participate in Try Transit Month and you could win fun prizes, including sports tickets, restaurant gift certificates, and special prizes just for UW U-PASS members -- including an awesome ski trip* to Whistler for two!. It's more fun to compete with friends, so we encourage everyone to create teams. When creating your team, please don't forget to pick UW as your "Organization" to show your husky pride and be eligible for UW-only prizes.

Need help finding the right bus to get to you campus? Check out Transportation Services' Transit page for details on which routes serve campus. And while you're at it, download the One Bus Away app so you can keep up to date on the real-time arrival time of your bus.
