Get a U-Pass add-on

You can buy a monthly U-Pass add-on for $30 at the downtown terminal at 430 John St. To qualify for the add-on, you must show:

  • A PRESTO card with a Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) pass on it
  • A student card from either McMaster University, Mohawk College or Redeemer College 
  • Proof of current term (fall, winter or spring/summer) enrollment in a full-time course load (schedule)
  • Register your PRESTO Card today

A registered card with your U-Pass add-on loaded can be replaced online if your card is lost, stolen or broken. If your PRESTO card is not registered, the U-Pass add-on cannot be transferred to a new card.
