NUNM participates in TriMet’s University Universal Pass Program. The TriMet pass is a sticker affixed to the student ID and must be presented upon boarding TriMet buses, trains or MAX. The pass is not transferable. Students must sign an acknowledgement of TriMet’s pass rules and a fee acknowledgement statement prior to receiving their TriMet Pass. Once a pass has been issued, Trimet passes cannot be returned for a refund.
Passes may be purchased at the beginning of fall, winter and spring quarter, and expire at the end of that quarter. Bus passes can be purchased from the Business Office within the first two weeks of each term. After that time no passes will be available for pick up.
Summer term is not included in the TriMet University Universal Pass Program. Therefore, students may purchase a bus pass at a higher, yet still discounted, rate for the term. Summer TriMet Passes must be ordered from facilities four weeks prior to the beginning of summer term in order to receive them by the beginning of the summer term.
If a TriMet pass is lost, replacement bus passes may be purchased through the Business Office. Students who request a replacement bus pass as a result of losing their ID card will be charged a prorated cost for the remaining weeks of the term. This only applies if there are remaining passes after term distribution. A student with a lost ID card will be charged a replacement fee; in addition, there is a fee to replace a lost TriMet pass. The TriMet fee may be waived, however, if the student chooses not to replace it. For information regarding fees, please consult the university catalog.
