Use of UST’s Shuttle Bus

One more privilege that the University is happy to provide our retirees at no cost is the opportunity to use the shuttle bus that operates between the University’s St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses. A UST Retiree ID card is required for this privilege. With this request, your UST Retiree ID card will be programmed to allow you to swipe your I.D. card upon boarding the shuttle bus. The University asks that you plan your shuttle trips with the following in mind:
  • Please avoid peak faculty, staff & student peak hours of 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon, Monday through Friday during the academic year. (Fall and Spring semesters). Shuttle drivers can only accept UST Faculty, Staff & Student ID cards during these times.
  • University retirees may use the shuttle that operates on Saturday without any time restrictions.
