Summer Pass Information 

Graduate Student Employee Information (updated July 1)

Similar to the last few summers, Graduate student employees who are employed at least 15% of time during the summer and have job codes of 1502, 1503, 1505, and 1506 will have their summer passes activated and paid for as part of their benefits package. All eligible passes have successfully had their suspensions removed for the summer. 

Suspension and Purchase Options (updated July 1)

RTD began charging to board buses on July 1, so CU is offering a prorated "optional bus pass" for our students to purchase. Due to not having in person classes this summer, the Bus and Bike Program fees are waived and all student bus passes have been suspended thru August 1. For students that would like to ride transit, without paying farebox rates, they can extend their bus pass remotely by following these steps:

  1. Login to your account at and deposit $45 to your Campus Cash account.
  2. Once the deposit in complete, email with the number on the bottom of your bus pass, highlighted below.
  3. We will charge your Campus Cash account the $45 fee and your pass will be extended through the summer.
  4. If complete by June 24, you should not experience any break in service.
    1. If completed after this day, you may experience up to a 72-hour delay

Please let us know if you have any questions. Pass purchase questions should be sent to and general pass questions should be sent to If no action is taken, Fall semester bus passes will automatically become active again on August 1 for students that will be enrolled for that semester.

Bus Program 

Buff Bus, HOP, and Stampede tracking available on Transit App
Real-time location tracking for CU Boulder’s Buff Buses is now available via the Transit app, the same mobile app where you can track RTD and HOP buses, B-Cycle and more. The Transit Mobile App is available for free at mobile app stores.

Common Bus Pass Problems
The most common problems that we deal with include cards not assigned to the correct user, deactivated cards, and defective cards. The Buff OneCard office isn't able to research student card issues e-mail instead. Pass Issuance and Replacement RTD College Passes are issued to incoming students upon move-in. If you need a bus pass and are a fee paying student, visit the Buff OneCard office in C4C. If you lost your card they can replace it for $10.
