Student Transit Information
Student Bus Pass
In collaboration with the London Transit Commission (LTC), the University Students' Council (USC) is pleased to provide eligible, full-time undergraduate students at Western with the USC Bus Bass. This pass provides free unlimited rides, at all bus stop locations, during all hours of operation, seven days a week (including holidays).
Eligible students are automatically assessed the mandatory fee for a bus pass, which is loaded onto their MyKings 1card (student card) and valid from September 1 until August 31 of the following year. There is no option to opt-in or opt-out of the USC Bus Pass for the 21-22 academic year. It is a mandatory plan, authorized by a student referendum that requires all eligible full time undergraduate students to participate. The addendum made to the USC/LTC contract for the 20-21 academic year was a one-time only exception in response to the global pandemic.
We encourage students to take full advantage of the pass and use this cost-saving method to experience all of the city of London has to offer!

Students who have received a new student card, as pictured below, will not be given a paper bus pass as your student card has the new ‘tap’ functionality. This would include all students from 2016-17 onward and some from 2015-16. The bottom of your card must look like the photo below to have the tap functionality.
Shuttle buses are available to all King’s students. They run between King's, Western, Huron and Brescia from Monday to Friday during the academic year. Route maps and schedules (including special exam busing) can be found here.
