Unlimited bus pass users must show ID

Madison Metro bus riders with unlimited passes will be required to show ID or have their passes confiscated beginning Monday.

There are concerns the bus passes are being used fraudulently. Beginning Monday, an employment or school photo ID will be required. University of Wisconsin students and employees have unlimited ride passes, which are non-transferable. If users don’t have their IDs, the passes will be confiscated and a one-day pass will be offered.

UW and UW Health employees who have their passes confiscated will need to get a replacement for $20.

The university said no identification is needed for the free campus bus routes.
