    Hi,

    I’ll be moving to Ontario from Saskatchewan for grad school and read that there’s a U-Pass for the transit system. Where and when can I pick it up? Will I need to bring anything other than a T-Card?

    Thanks.

  2. UTMAGS says:

    This is correct! You only require your T-Card to pick up your UPass, which can be acquired from the Office of the Vice Dean (Davis Building, Room 3200)
