Free Public Transportation with U-Pass
(Lightrail and Bus)
If you are a registered full-time student of Washington University or Washington University School of Medicine, the university provides a U-Pass. There is no charge for the U-Pass. The U-Pass allows you to access the MetroBus and MetroLink system; however, you must show your valid Washington University ID in conjunction with a valid U-Pass to ride free. The Danforth Campus, West Campus, North Campus and Medical Campus all have MetroLink stations. The Medical Campus also has the Central West End MetroBus hub.
For those needing a car to run an errand or for overnight, we have a car-sharing program. Details are available through the Parking & Transportation Services website.
Parking on Campus
Hourly, daily and permit parking is available in the 2300-space School of Medicine Clayton Garage (corner of Clayton and Taylor avenues) and the 700-space School of Medicine Metro Garage (corner of Children’s Place and Taylor Avenue). Parking in patient or visitor spaces by faculty, staff or students is strictly prohibited at all times. Additional information, maps and fees are available on the Transportation Services website.
