SEPTA Temple University

Tired of traffic on the way to campus? Sign up now for the University Pass and skip the gridlock. The University Pass is a discounted semester long SEPTA pass that is available to full time students at Temple. It is good for SEPTA’s regional rail lines or subway system. In addition to saving money and having free time during your commute, you are helping Temple reduce its greenhouse gas emissions when you take public transit, as public transit is more energy efficient than driving.

The application form, which contains more detailed information and pricing, is available online through the Bursar Office (typically available in early August and December). University Pass sales are limited to amounts in stock. Once sold out, you will need to purchase a monthly pass through SEPTA at regular prices.
