Transportation Passes

The UPASS is a special semester-long transportation pass for Tunxis students that is valid for unlimited trips during the semester on all CT Transit local service buses and rail lines within the state of CT and on CTfastrak (www.ctfastrak.com) – Connecticut’s first bus rapid transit system.


You must take at least one credit class per semester on campus. Exclusively online and early college/high school students are not eligible for the program. Students can use the unlimited semester pass to travel within the state on rail or bus including CTtransit and CTfastrak, but excluding Amtrak.

Good to know:

Passes are available starting August 1 and December 15 for distribution prior to the start of the term. There will be enough passes for all students but students are not obligated to pick up or use the card.
